The city used to be the capital of the Kingdom of Chimor before the Incans overran them and has coughed up four wood sculptures. 3 were males but 1 was a woman, an unusual finding for their culture. Further work will likely be done on these statues but look for any news about the site since it seems to be getting far more interesting.
