Clay pots piled on a tomb of the Lord of Sipan archeological site near Chiclayo, Peru in the Lambayeque Valley.
Archaeologists uncovered burial places of several lesser important figures besides royalty at Sipan. One, a high priest, had a tomb almost as impressive as the royal ones. Another burial contained 1,137 pots shaped into warriors, priests, prisoners, musicians, and anthropomorphic deities.
