South-American Mummies

By: The British Broadcasting Company (BBC)

Relics of an Inca sacrificial ritual 500 years ago. "Three frozen mummies that appear to be in an unprecedented state of preservation, as well as a cache of pristine artifacts, have been unearthed on an Andean volcano by an international team of archaeologists. The two girls and a boy, relics of an Inca sacrificial ritual, were found in a burial platform atop Argentinas Mount Llullaillaco, at 22,000 feet (6,706 meters) the worlds highest archaeological site..." -[National Geographic: Story, 4/99]-

A Discovery story: Mummy in the Peruvian Andes. "The dead decay quickly in the cloud-covered forest of the Peruvian Andes. But in November 1996, a few ranchers clearing trees stumbled upon a remarkable thing: a cache of extremely well-preserved mummies. They were from a long-forgotten tribe called the Chachapoyas and had probably survived close to 500 years."

Hundreds of preserved bodies, the earliest of which are children, have been discovered in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile and southern Peru." -[Archaeology Today]-
