Pre-Inca Mummified Baby Found At Peru Historic Tomb
More than 1,000 years ago this pre-Inca baby was laid to rest on a barren Peruvian hillside.

It was among dozens of well-preserved mummified skeletons found by archaeologists on the outskirts of the capital city of Lima.

The discovery was made by experts who were hired by the Government to search the hillside for any remains prior to the building of a new road.

Three days into the project the archaeologist came across the cemetery, according to National Geographic News.

By now we have over 40 [mummy bundles] and the number increases every day. Guillermo Cock, a Lima-based archaeologist, reportedly told the website.

Given the proximity to the city and the tradition of looting in the area, we are really surprised that this is mostly undisturbed, mostly intact, mostly unlooted.

Only a few bundles have suffered damage by human action.

In total the team located around 26 tombs, containing both children and adults.

Amazing what's still turning up in that part of the world- just imagine the possibilities if someone actually got it together to do a dedicated archeologic survey.

Good share DS, thanks.

And all nearby an (apparently VERY LARGE) Incan cemetery-

The latest discovery was made close to Puruchuco-Huaquerones - the largest Inca cemetery ever excavated.
In the last 60 years researchers have examined just 10 per cent of the historic site.


Amazing, thank you for the share! applause
