Sipan, has been one of the hottest topic in archeological circles around the world. The site had been plundered by huaqueros or grave robbers and as far as it is known, more than twenty sacks of artifacts from what was a royal tomb with the remains of a man who would become known as the “Lord of Sipan” had already disappeared when Dr. Alva began his preliminary excavations on the Moche culture site.
The next important period in the Trujillo area, the Chimu, lasted from about 1000 AD to 1470 AD. The Chimu built a capital at Chan Chan, just north of Trujillo. Chan Chan is the largest pre-Columbian city in Peru, covering about 28 sq km, and is estimated to have housed about 50,000 people.
