Evidence of the largest single incident of mass child sacrifice by members of the sprawling ancient Chimú Empire where up to 140 children and 200 young llamas were killed.
The children were between five to 14 years, according to reports.
While incidents of human sacrifice among the Aztec, Maya, and Inca have been recorded in scientific excavations, this discovery in the little-known pre-Columbian Chimú civilization is “unprecedented in the Americas—if not in the entire world”.
MASS KILLING: The remains of three adults were also found in close proximity EPA

As of March 1, 2018, art lovers can dig into a side order of archaeology as their Uffizi tickets allow free entry into Florence’s Museum of Archaeology, also known as the MAF, located in piazza Santissima Annunziata. The partnership highlights the enduring bond that the museums have maintained since the Medici era.
Indeed, a large part of the varied collections at the MAF comes directly from the Medici’s holdings. The museum is famed for its Egyptian section, which was removed from the grand duchy’s collection in its final years to act as a stand-alone museum. Following Italian unification, additional pieces were added to the collection in the 1870s, including the famous Chimera of Arezzo, The Orator, Minerva, François Vase and the Fibula Corsini.
Museum director Mario Iozzo elaborated, “Florence’s National Archaeological Museum is the largest of its kind north of Rome and, together with Villa Giulia in Rome, it is the most important museum in the world for Etruscan art and the civili..

Plankton (from the word plankton, ie wandering) is all the organisms that exist in the seas and the fresh waters and are moved drifting with the streams of water. It consists of microscopic predominantly species (<1mm), with amazing shapes, but it also includes large-sized organisms, such as jellyfish.
It is one of the most prominent symbols of Pakistan’s Buddhist heritage — a giant 7th-century rock sculpture of Buddha sitting in a meditative pose in Jahanabad, Swat. It’s an image of peaceful contemplation far removed from the hustle and bustle of modern urban life.
That peace was shattered on September 2007 when the Taliban blew up half of the sculpture’s face by drilling holes and putting explosives in it. It takes only a few minutes (and little skill) to carry out such an act of wanton destruction. But to fix it requires years of patience and devotion. In 2012, the Italian Archaeological Mission in Swat started the restoration of Buddha’s face. The process lasted a few years and was eventually completed in October 2016.
“The entire face was damaged by two blasts,” says Dr Luca Maria Olivieri (right), the director of the Italian Archaeological Mission in Pakistan. “We collected all the available fragments and with the help of 3D technology, we were able to reconstruct the original ..
