El Paraíso

El Paraíso is a site of mysterious ruins built in the Late Preceramic or Cotton Preceramic period (3500-1800 BCE) or an aceramic site of 0.58 sq kilometers in Chillon River Valley, San Martín de Porres District, Lima Province, Peru . The area was once occupied briefly by a group of cultures for at least 300 to 400 years and the estimated population is 1500 and 3000 people.

The ruins of the Andean Preceramic stone structure have long been a debate among archaeologists calling the Late Preceramic period, while Fréderic Engel (1957) refers to Cotton Preceramic. Pozorski and Pozorski (2008) argue El Paraíso is an "aceramic" site because at that time many other areas have ceramics.

The purpose of the site is also still mysterious given the lack of sediment, the presence of burial or grave areas, and the construction of thick walls consisting of rocks dug in local hills which confirm the theory that the site is not a residential or domestic complex. The evidence precisely promotes controversy whether El Paraso is an economic or religious center or perhaps both.

Archaeological findings suggest a possible link to Kotosh Religious Tradition in the Central Highlands. The site has a U-shape that creates a 7-hectare plaza and may inspire it for the development of Chillón-Rimac-Lurin Valleys architecture in the future.

El Paraíso is the largest and earliest monumental architectural example in the New World and has not produced a large number of archaeological investigations since it was first reported in the 1950s. The first excavations were made in the early and mid-1960s and subsequent excavations in the early to mid-1980s.

Excavation work in Unit II, IV, and several locations outside the structure in 1984 found a variety of artifactual materials from various works detailing subsistence, social and ideological insights. Five burials associated with sites where an adult and baby remains are found next to the southern exterior wall of Unit I.

The baby was wrapped in textiles dated to the Ceramic Age. Other adult skeletons are found on the western side of Unit I and young infants at the base of the south wall of the west wing of Unit I. The cemetery generally appears to be subject to sediment and researchers have difficulty making certain conclusions.

Unit II produces a variety of scraps including fabric, textile, and other domestic rubbish. Unit IV produces almost exclusively food scraps, but no artifacts are found. Residents of El Paraíso bury most of their garbage in holes that are often associated with structures on the back or beside the building or as the contents of space.
