Wari culture artifacts found in Ayacucho, Peru

Archaeologists working at the Wari archaeological complex have made new discoveries of this mysterious pre-Inca society. The Wari were an expansive civilization in Peru from around 500 AD to 1000 AD. Their capital city, also called Wari, was located near the city of Ayacucho, in inland Peru.

Mario Cueto Cardenas from the Ayacucho Culture Board told the Andina news Agency that now  an exposition for the new Wari finds is being prepared, “which will allow us to explore unknown spaces, because there are more mysteries that will allow us to better understand the economic and cultural system of the Wari.”

Juan Arango Claudio, local tourism official, told Andina that “In spite of all the effort that has been expended, we only know a small percentage, that can’t be more than 10%, about the Wari, but we’re hoping that these advances will allow us more tourism flow, because these historical spaces are being evaluated.” More details about the new findings are expected to be announced in coming weeks, according to Andina.
