Hundreds of Bronze Artifacts Back from Inca Empire Discovered

leave a comment »

bronzeSeems to be a busy day on Peruvian archaeology. In Cuzco (close to Macchu Pichu), archaeologists have discovered hundreds of bronze artifacts that date back from the Inca empire, including 179 plumbs (cylindrical cone-shaped weights) of different types and 98 nose rings, as Andina reports.

This discovery would confirm the hypothesis that Incas had different methods of construction used to build their houses, and employed high-quality techniques to control vertical alignments of their buildings.
