The pieces, which were discovered by experts of Cusco's Regional Directorate of Culture, were found 70 centimeters underground.

According to archeologist Carlos Werner Delgado, the artifacts were left as an offering to the gods of Machu Picchu and Salkantay snowcapped mountain due to the position they were placed underground.   

He noted that the pieces would date back to time of Pachacutec, between 1438 and 1470, but the ceremonial pot of Chimu culture would be the oldest one dating back 1000 and 1200.
