There were two consecutive yet different funerary occupations of the Tablada de Lurín necropolis during the Early Intermediate Period. This work focused on the second occupation (1st and 2nd centuries AD) and aimed to reconstruct the funerary pattern and the 'life cycle' of the collective burial chambers by applying the methods of the FRench school of Archeothanatologie. Fieldwork and analysis of previous excavation documents provided details on how the dead were buried and on how the remains were displaced within the chambers. Laboratory analysis of the remains confirmed the taphonomical field observations. It also demonstrated the presence of secondary burials and the under-representation of juveniles younger than one year. In conclusion, the subterranean stone burial chambers held collective primary and secondary burials. The dead were placed in baskets, in a sitting/squatting position, and wrapped in a shroud. As more individuals were deposited in each structure, the remains already within were moved to the back and the sides of the tomb, finally forming a large cluster of bones. Subterranean stone burial chambers are present in other parts of Peru and collective burial is not an unknown practice in the Central Highlands. Nevertheless, the Tablada funerary ritual stands out because it is applied to all individuals in the community, both young and old, female and male.
