Over 3,800 Archaeological Pieces Repatriated to Peru from Argentina

LIMA – A total of 3,898 archaeological pieces will be repatriated this year to Peru from Argentina following a decades-long court battle, the Peruvian government said.

Prime Minister Ana Jara said her government was pleased that Argentine authorities agreed to allow the repatriation of items that “are part of Peruvian culture.”

Jara, along with Foreign Minister Gonzalo Gutierrez and Culture Minister Diana Alvarez Calderon, attended an exhibition of 42 other cultural items returned to Peru.

“Four valuable textile pieces have been repatriated already and they are the first batch of 89 pieces located in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden,” Gutierrez said. “We will soon receive nine colonial-era canvas paintings from the United States.”

Among the items on exhibit is a funeral shroud from the Paracas culture that was stolen in 1993 from the Archaeology, Anthropology and History Museum in Lima and was recently recovered in the United States.

Another item is a book from 1827 titled “Florae fluminensis Vol. I” which, according to Gutierrez, “belonged to the Lima Public Library at the beginning of our republic, and it was returned voluntarily by a Chilean citizen to our embassy in Santiago.”

“To this book, we can add a 17th-century manuscript detailing a real estate transaction in the old town of Magdalena, delivered by a Spanish citizen to our diplomatic mission in Madrid,” Gutierrez said.
