Archaeologists have made a fascinating discovery at the Incan citadel of Machu Picchu in Peru. A tomb, thought to belong to a high ranking member of the Inca Empire, has been uncovered in a cave at the archaeological complex and is creating more intrigue around this ‘lost city’ of the Incas.

The tomb is strategically placed on a hill facing the wall of Machu Picchu, indicating the importance of the person buried inside. Specialists are examining the tomb but have not found any bones or ornaments inside which is due to raiding that took place at Machu Picchu before the site was conserved and protected.
