Lima, Peru: Another discovery has been made from Peru, the land of antiquities, mummies and amazing stories. This is a mummy that is tied up in ropes and sitting in a very painful position.
Researchers at the National University of San Marcos have discovered the mummy at Kaha Morkella, an archeological site 25 kilometers from the Peruvian capital Lima.
Mimi covers her face with both hands and is held tight. But according to experts, this was not a desecration or torture of the dead, but a ritual of burial that was common in this civilization at that time. According to a careful estimate, it is 800 to 1200 years old, which dates back to pre-Spanish times, and probably even pre-civilization.
Experts said it was the body of a 25- to 30-year-old man who lived in the mountains of the area. Experts resumed research and excavations here in October this year, after which several important items were discovered, but the mummy is the most important discovery. Experts did not expect to be able to make such an important discovery.
Oysters and other fragments have been found outside Mimi’s tomb, but the beach is 25 km away. The bones of camel-like llamas have also been found in many graves, as their flesh was eaten with gusto in ancient Peru.
