LORD OF SIPAN TOMB& HUACA RAJADA: The famous Moche Pyramid near Chiclayo, in the Lambayeque Valley, famous for the tomb of the Lord of Sipán

Huaca Rajada, Sipán, Peru

The Huaca Rajada, of Sipán, Peru, is a Moche Pyramid near Chiclayo, Peru in the Lambayeque Valley, famous for the tomb of the Lord of Sipán, Peru, excavated by Walter Alva and his wife Susana Meneses in 1987. The ruins of Sipán are dated from 50–700 AD, during the Moche culture. The tomb of the Lord of Sipán, Peru, and of other noble persons themselves are made of adobe bricks like all other Moche pyramids.

 

Royal tombs of Huaca Rajada, Sipán, Peru, were discovered after the discovery of an infamous looting and the following scientific excavation took place between 1987–1990. The looting could be stopped and much of the site could still be salvaged as many artifacts were still in place. As a result much more of the Moche rulers and traditions could be understood.  The tombs at Sipán showed that rulers actually took part in sacrifice ceremonies when looking at the artifacts uncovered including: adornments and a headdresses that matched the illustrations of the ceremonies along with large knives and tools that would have been used for bloodletting and decapitation.

 

During the excavations in 1987–1990, a spectacular treasure of gold and silver ornamental and ceremonial artifacts was recovered, dating to AD 50–300. These objects demonstrate the outstanding craftsmanship of the Moche metalsmiths through their use of elaborate and advanced metalworking techniques. Moche smiths made these artifacts out of thin sheets of copper alloys, using electrochemical processes to purify an extremely thin (0.5–2.0 μm) layers of gold or silver coating.
