London, Oct. 26 (ANI): Archaeologists have discovered two mummies more than 1,000 years old in Peruvian capital Lima 's suburb.

The mummies - of an adult and a child - were discovered at an ancient religious complex that is being excavated since 1981, the BBC reported.

The child is believed to have been offered to the gods and may have been buried alive after the adult's death.

Researchers also discovered other offerings, which includes the remains of guinea pigs and jars with feline designs.

The mummies are in a squatting position and are fully dressed wrapped in rope.
