Our World in Pictures: Week 23 of 2022

Remains were found during the archeological work in the old Royal Hospital of San Andres on 31 May 2022, in Lima, Peru, (issued 10 June 2022). What appears to be the oldest cemetery in Lima was found by a team of archaeologists who, in addition to a liquor bottle left behind by looters, have found pieces that provide a better understanding of the puzzle of colonial life.

Shocking, moving, terrifying, surprising... These are the images of some of this week’s events around the world.

Remains were found during the archeological work in the old Royal Hospital of San Andres on 31 May 2022, in Lima, Peru, (issued 10 June 2022). What appears to be the oldest cemetery in Lima was found by a team of archaeologists who, in addition to a liquor bottle left behind by looters, have found pieces that provide a better understanding of the puzzle of colonial life. The burial grew in the heart of Lima, in the shadow of the Royal Hospital of San Andres, the oldest in South America which, in the same year of its inauguration -1552-, failed for the first time in its original function as a medical center and had to open the necropolis.
