Ilo: Centro Mallqui

Ilo: Centro Mallqui

We have been doing our work at the Centro Mallqui research center in El Algorrabal.

The importance of Centro Mallqui is to preserve the cultural and biological remains of the Chinchorro and Chiribaya cultures. Looting is a wide spread issue in Peru because those that loot the tombs take only artifacts that they can sell on the Black Market, leaving the tombs and physical remains of these prehistoric people scattered.

Below are pictures of where we have been working. All around the center are symbols from the Chiribaya culture.
