The Sechin Alto Complex included a proto-urban settlement of approximately 4 miles in diameter and included the sites of Sechin Bajo, Taukachi-Konkan, and Cerro Sechin. Julio C. Tello was the first archaeologist to survey Sechin Alto, in the late 1930s; later investigators have included Donald Collier, Donald Thompson, Rosa Fung, Carlos Williams and Sheila and Thomas Pozorski.
