Evidence shows that powerful women ruled 1,200 years ago in northern Peru View of one of two skeletons found in a burial chamber of the Moche culture (between 200-700 AD), in the Cao religious compound, close to the city of Trujillo, some 570 kilometers north of Lima, on August 3, 2013. The finding of a pre-Hispanic tomb of a priestess, the eighth in more than two decades of research, put in evidence that powerful women ruled 1,200 years ago in northern Peru, according to archaeologists who found the burial chamber.
