The remains of two children, perhaps a boy and a girl, rest beside each other at a mass burial site on the arid coast of northern Peru. They are among the 269 children who were sacrificed and buried around A .D. 1450 at two sites near Chan Chan, the ancient capital of the Chimú people. Most of the victims were killed with a cut to the chest, possibly to remove the heart, and buried in simple shrouds.
