Peruvian archaeologists presented the results of nearly two years of work on reconstructing the image of a young woman whose skeleton was discovered by construction workers in Lima in 2018.

Footage showing the rare find was filmed in San Juan de Lurigancho district of the capital on Wednesday.

According to the researchers, the 20-year-old woman who was named Wayaw lived in a village called 'El Sauce' and mostly likely was a weaver.

"Her shoulders, wrists and waist are worn. Then we would be saying that our Wayaw was a woman artisan like many artisans who live in the district of San Juan de Lurigancho today," said Cecilia Camargo, an archaeologist involved in the project.

Using the latest technologies, the scientists were able to create a 3D image of the woman.

"The discovery of Wayaw, when finding the tomb of the Lady of El Sauce has been a milestone. It has been a very important milestone. One, for the state of conservation. Because we could relate it to the time in which she lived. It had a direct connection with the history of many current settlers," added Camargo.

The skeleton will be transferred to the Peruvian Ministry of Culture which will determine the place for its exposition.
