chachapoyas-peru-4_1126226cA city has been found in the northern jungle area of Peru’s Amazon dated more than 1,000 years old belonging to the ancient Chachapoya tribe, as UK newspaper The Telegraph reports.

This tribe is said to have been beaten into submission by the mighty Incas in 1475, and eventually wiped out by small pox and other diseases brought by the Europeans.

The discovery also includes very-well kept ancient ceramics and undisturbed burial sites.
