Lambayeque Burials in Huaca La Capilla - San Jose de Moro Site
Huaca La Capilla is one of the best preserved architectural mounds in the archaeological site of San Jose de Moro . Its construction corresponds to the Late Moche period, but extends its occupation after its closure . Excavations in the units 55 and 64, located on the northern slope of the mound gives us an approximation to the function that had the structure after the Moche period.This poster presents the results of 2 field campaigns conducted in 2015 and 2016 where 40 burials of the Lambayeque period were recorded in an total area of 50 m2. This case study provides important information regarding how social memory was constructed by social groups in the north coast of Peru.
