From 50 to 850 AC there was a civilization on the north coast of Peru called Moche.
The moche people build such beautiful and complex temples that were hidden and
protected until nowadays. Apart from the architecture, the moche people are famous
because of the offerings they made to their gods. In northern Peru we have a
phenomenon called El Niño, when it happens, we have a rainy season from 3 months
to 2 years. This phenomenon made this civilization believe that their gods were mad
and they decided to made the best offerings, including human sacrifices.

to change a civilizations belief.
