Acheivements / Contributions  :

  • Walter Alva found The Lord of Sipán, a mummy in Sipán in 1987.

  • Alva also discovered the oldest temple murals in the Americas.

  • Also at this site a temple was found that was made with simple building materials which was odd because the mural was found to be more elegant. This was an important find because it showed that the culture was able to spread farther then it was previously thought.
