Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum, Lambayeque, Peru

The Lord of Sipan was revealed to the world in 1987. He reigned approximately 200 A.D. and died about 40 years of age. Sipan is located in the northern part of Peru, close to the coast, in the middle of Lambayeque Valley, 35 Km. at east of Chiclayo. Four tombs have been found in Sipan's Huaca Rajada, the huaca is a mausoleum built by the Moche culture that ruled the northern coast of Peru from the time of Christ to 700 AD, centuries prior to the Incas.
