A worker carries a bag of salt after collecting it from a pond at the Maras mines in Cuzco
A worker carries a bag of salt after collecting it from a pond at the Maras mines in Cuzco December 3, 2014. Salt has been obtained in Maras since pre-Incan times by evaporating highly salty local subterranean stream water. The water is intricately channelled through constructions, flowing gradually down onto several hundred ancient terraced ponds. From each pond, a local member of the mine cooperative can produce 150 to 200 kilos per month which can be sold in the markets at $0.34 per kilogram, according to miners.

An archaeological site in the midst of Peru's bustling capital has yielded yet another pre-Incan prize, an undisturbed Wari tomb containing two corpses wrapped in ceremonial fabric, archeologists said on Thursday. The tomb, estimated to be more than 1,000 years old, was found at the Pucllana archaeological site in Lima. It contained the bodies of an adult and an infant, along with nearly 10 intact artifacts.

Demonstrators march to demand Yale University return archeological treasures taken from Machu Picchu in the early 1900s., in Lima, November 5, 2010. Peru says Yale has some 40,000 of artifacts including pottery, jewelry and bones from the Incan site in the Peruvian Andes. The artifacts were sent out of Peru after a Yale alumnus, U.S. explorer Hiram Bingham, rediscovered Machu Picchu in 1911. Yale has shown a willingness to return the pieces as long as Peru can ensure they are cared for properly. The signs reads, "Peruvians together will never be beaten" (L) and "Peru defends Machu Picchu" ' Mariana Bazo/ REUTERS (PERU - Tags: CIVIL UNREST POLITICS EDUCATION)

Riders on Peruvian Paso horses guide their horses past a judge during the National Show in Mamacona near Lima February 12, 2010. In the shadow of the Pre-Incan ruin of Pachacamac, Peruvians in straw hats and white ponchos saunter around a lawn at a beauty contest for one of the most enduring symbols of Spanish colonialism -- the horse. The contests at Mamacona, a colonial hacienda that is home to Peru's main association of horse breeders, are held to celebrate the breed's elegance, which has long appealed to Peru's old aristocracy and, increasingly, to wealthy professionals.
