[From the Original 1927 Catalog] Here is a series of constructions grouped together bearing the name of the first Peruvian archaeologist, Julio C. Tello, located in that vast territory bounded by the Trujillo-Huanchaco road on the northeast and the Tschudi and Rivero groups on the southwest: the Bandelier and Uhle groups on the southeast and the Cabildo and Velarde groups on the northwest. The general aspect is one of ruined walls, mall mounds, wells, rubbish heaps in all directions, cemeteries, remains of ordinary habitations, etc. Near the eastern angle of the Cabildo group remains a small building in good state of preservations.
