Moche archaeological site. Archaeologist making a drawing to record the details of Moche wall sculptures at the Huaca de la Luna site in Peru. A grid of strings allows methodical examination of each section of the sculptures. These wall sculptures depict spider-like creatures. Some of the original paints can be seen on the wall. Huaca de la Luna (The Temple of the Moon) is thought to have been used by the Moche for religious ceremonies such as human sacrifices. The Moche were a pre-Hispanic people that lived in coastal river valleys in northern Peru. Their civilisation reached its height in the period from 100-700 AD.
