Julio C. Tello

Julio Cesar Tello was a Peruvian archaeologist. He is considered to have been the first Peruvian archeologist to treat archaeological sites in a scientific manner.

Tello is well-known for his discovery of 429 mummy bundles in 1925 in the Cerro Colorado area of Peru. His findings are the most significant source of information regarding the Paracas culture, which dates to 750 B.C.E-100 C.E. The Tello Obelisk, an eight-foot high obelisk located in Peru at the archaeological site of Chavin de Huantar, is also named after for his discovery of it.
