Girls where sacrifised for a good harvest

About 33 mumies has been found close to Chichlayo in Peru, 30 of the remains is from young girls in the age 9-15 that had gotten their throats cut, probably a part of a ritual to have a good harvest.
Executions in religous purpose where very common in the Ands before the Spanish conquest, but that much sacrifised persons hasn´t been found in the same place before.
It wasn´t very common that young girls very sacrifised either in these rituals.
