Archaeology: "Women in a Temple of Death"

Archaeologists specializing in Peru’s north coast were forced to come up with new answers when they unearthed the unexpected.

Contrary to the long-established tradition of ancient societies in the region to kill male prisoners and drink their blood, researchershave found the remains of the bloody sacrifice of six young women in about A.D. 850, reports Archaeology.

Uncovered beneath the floor of a mudbrick temple in Pucalá, just outside of Chiclayo, the remains of six women perplexed archaeologists.
