15 year old girl frozen for 500 years.

The maiden, the boy, the girl of lightning: they were three Inca children, entombed on a bleak and frigid mountaintop 500 years ago as a religious sacrifice…

Unearthed in 1999 from the 22,000-foot summit of Mount Llullaillaco, a volcano 300 miles west of here near the Chilean border, their frozen bodies were among the best preserved mummies ever found, with internal organs intact, blood still present in the heart and lungs, and skin and facial features mostly unscathed. No special effort had been made to preserve them. The cold and the dry, thin air did all the work. They froze to death as they slept, and 500 years later still looked like sleeping children, not mummies

  1. Hey there superb blog! Does running a blog similar to this take
    a lot of work? I have absolutely no expertise in computer programming
    but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyway, if you have any suggestions or techniques
    for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but
    I just wanted to ask. Thanks a lot!
