COMPLEX ARCHAEOLOGICAL THE SORCERER - HUACA OLD CAO


The Archaeological Complex The Sorcerer is located in the town of Magdalena of Cao, in Ascope, Trujillo. During almost twenty years the Archaeological Project The Sorcerer, directed by the Foundation Wiese, he/she has studied and position in value the prints of the different cultures that occupied it uninterruptedly during at least 5000 years. From the first hunter-recolectores until the colonial occupations, going by the cultures that preceded and they followed Mochica, their main ocupadores, the Archaeological Complex The Sorcerer is a prodigious window toward the history of the old Peruvians.

Thanks to the Archaeological Project The Sorcerer, Huaca Cao passed of being a mound without form to be considered the ceremonial most important center in the Valley of Chicama. This pyramid Mochica is in fact the sum of four superimposed temples, each one buried ceremonially, throughout five centuries, to give him/her passes to a new temple, a new era. Mochica buried in this building to the highest hierarchy; the most impressive in these funerals is that of the Mrs. of Cao .la first ruling woman that has been discovered in the Peruvian archaeology. that has astonished to the world for their splendid gears, the pomp with which it was buried and their astonishing conservation state. The enigmatic tattoos with those that it is covered their skin, preserved with cinnabar, they opened a page of the history of Peru until then unknown.
