A Mysterious Mummy in Peru

A mummy, fully bound in ropes and with its hands covering its face, was discovered in an underground vault in Peru.

The mummy was discovered in good condition by archaeologists from the National University of San Marcos in Cajamarquilla, a significant site 15.5 miles inland from Lima, Peru’s coastal city and capital.

The mummy is estimated to be between 800 and 1200 years old.

Researchers believe the mummy’s striking pose — bound by ropes and in the foetal position — is a southern Peruvian funeral custom.

The tomb also contained ceramics, vegetable remains, and stone tools.
