Dr. Juengst comments on "unprecedented" mass graves of child sacrifices in Ancient Peru

A recently published article reports the findings of a mass child sacrifice in ancient Peru. Our own Dr. Sara Juengst is quoted in a summary of the findings (click here for link to the Nova summary article) in which she recognizes the importance of the find. Dr. Juengst also reminds readers that events such as these should not be viewed from our own cultural lens - the killing of more than one hundred children may have been thought to be beneficial to society rather than an act of violence on a large scale.
