F, The bodies of the children were positioned such that their faces looked west toward the ocean, while the llamas were made to face east toward the Andes mountains. An analysis of the sediments found at Huanchaquito-Las Llama suggests the region had been hit with a natural disaster shortly before the ritual killings, likely a massive flood or heavy rainfall.
That the mass child and animal sacrifice was a response to a natural disaster is wholly conceivable, said Sugiyama. More evidence, she said, will be required to make more specific interpretations. As to why children and juvenile llamas were sacrificed and not adults, Sugiyama said it likely had to do with their transitional nature. With the excavation and preliminary analysis complete, Prieto and his colleagues are now planning to analyze the skeletons in more detail.
Using oxygen and strontium isotopes, for example, the scientists should be able to discern diet and the geographical origin of the children and the llamas.
