1,000-year-old mummy with long brown hair discovered in Peru

A 1,000-year-old mummy sporting enviable long brown tresses has been unearthed by archeologists in a residential neighborhood in Peru’s capital.

The ancient cadaver boasting a full head of hair was discovered alongside ceramic jars, fabrics and other artifacts inside an underground funeral chamber at the Huaca Pucllana site in the middle of Lima’s affluent Miraflores district, the head of the team of archaeologists, Mirella Ganoza, told Reuters on Wednesday.

“This is an adult individual in a sitting position with bent legs,” the expert said, noting that the mummy had long locks and a jaw that was nearly completely intact.

“What looks like a braid may be a cord that held her hairstyle,” Ganoza told the news outlet La Republica of the mummy.

Experts noted that they do not yet know the gender of the preserved corpse.

This mummy predates the Inca civilization by a couple of centuries, though the people group might be ancestral. It would be interesting to know if this burial was of an already dead person or of a human sacrifice.
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

Were they expecting to find a blue eyed blonde?
Full disclosure...I didn't read the story.

@Wingnut

I could very well be wrong,but I THINK they were expecting jet black hair,like all the current natives have.

The brown hair had to have came as a shock.
