Ancient Temple Unearthed In South American Desert

Shortly after the dig began, the team of archaeologists painfully uncovered three walls from the ancient temple. But when they delved further, they found the skeletons of three adults wedged in between them. As the remains were found with religious offerings, it is quite possible that the three people were a part of a ritual sacrifice.

The walls of the ancient temple were constructed out of mud and surrounded a central staircase that would have led to an open area. Etched into the walls are friezes that depict images almost as disturbing as the discovery of the bodies in between them. Human bodies with bird heads and razor-sharp claws adorn the outer sides of what was once a grand structure.
