Looted gold headdress returned to Peru


Peruvian 1300 year old Inca headdress(LIP-wb) - The looted Peruvian antique headdress that was recently recovered by Scotland Yard in London has finally made its way home.
The treasure made of gold by the Mochica pre-Hispanic culture depicting an image of a sea god was presented to the media at Peru's Foreign Ministry in Lima today.

The 1,300-year piece was looted from an ancient tomb in the Jequetepeque valley in northern Peru nearly 20 years ago.

It is an error to call the headdress an Inca relic. Later on it is correctly listed at as a relic from the Mochica culture, which ante dates the Incas by some time.

my bad. Thanks for the knowledge, Carlos, you're absolutely right! Not everything that's old in Peru stems from the Incas :-)
