From the article:

A team of archaeologists from universities in Poland, Peru and Colombia have discovered 150 mummies in the Atacama Desert belonging to an unknown culture that predate the Tiwanaku and Inca civilization by almost 500 years.

The bodies were mummified naturally by being buried directly in the sand with no stone structures, wrapped in cotton veils, reed mats or fishing nets, and radiocarbon dating shows that the oldest mummies came from 4th century AD, while the youngest mummies came from 7th century AD.

Those slit eyed howling mouth pots are the sort of thing that will haunt me until I manage to get another 4 beers down.

  • Few things do more harm than the belief that life should be Dramatic.

"Mummies" is maybe stretching a point. But they are certainly dead!
