Incredible discovery in Peru; Archaeologists discovered ceramic structures that resemble dinosaur eggs
Researchers in Cosma, Peru have come across an incredible discovery as they found artifacts that eerily resemble remains of giant dinosaur eggs. Although experts are unsure what these structures are, they could be giant pots, ossuaries which were used to house human remains or, strangely, the remains of giant dinosaur eggs.
Excavations will continue at the Karecoto archaeological site which is located near the village of Cosma in the Nepeña Valley. Experts are extremely excited about the new discoveries.
Kimberly Muno, Co-project Director of the “Proyecto Arqueológico Distrito de Cáceres Ancash” shared the new findings with “Popular Archaeology Magazine and social networks”
Muno and her colleagues do not want to rush to conclusions, excavation will continue at the site and new discoveries are expected to be made in the coming weeks which would shed more light about the mysterious findings.
Munro stated on her Facebook page that at least on of the artifacts discovered at Karecoto contained human remains.

Through social networks, Munro reported that at least on of the “eggs” contained human remains. “There is material inside, what could be the remains of an infant, but there are also remains found outside of the “eggs.”
The archaeological site of Karecoto is a vast ceremonial complex centered on a large mound. Its construction dates back to the Early Horizon period in Peru from around 900 BC. This ancient ceremonial complex measures 250 meters long by 70 wide and has a truncated top, it includes walls and several household structures which are surrounded by what seem to be prehistoric channels.

The archaeological site is located in the upper Nepeña Valley of central Peru. Researchers state that this is a relatively unexplored complex and it includes at least three man-made mounds which are believed to be around 3,000 years old.
