Old Bones Are Found – level 3

03-05-2022 15:00

People made a discovery during restoration work at one of Peru’s earliest Christian sites, the Saint Francis of Assisi Temple.

Buried deep inside this centuries-old crypt that archaeologists accidentally stumbled upon, are human bones that could total up to 32 complete skeletons.

The remains are in bad condition after hundreds of years’ worth of disturbances at the site. Archaeologists say that the crypt, which is thought to be more than 500 years old, was used as a burial site for early believers. A mural of the Christian nativity scene, which people believe is part of the original decoration at the temple, was also found.

Difficult words: stumble (find something by chance), disturbance (activity), mural (a painting on a wall), nativity scene (a model which represents the birth of Jesus Christ).
