More Mummies! Issue Date: 03-29-1998

Cool Spots imageIt seems like a horror story, but it's real history: More than 500 years ago, a young girl knelt in prayer to be sacrificed to her gods. And in a way, she "lived" to tell the tale. Mark this in your field notes: www.nationalgeographic.com/features/97/andes. This is the key to your archeology expedition into the Andes mountains. Witness the discovery of the Inca "ice maiden" and learn about the rituals of the ancient civilizations in South America. Chart the course on virtual maps and explore the treasures of the maiden's tomb. Then head into the lab! The virtual autopsy shows you how modern medical science helps archeologists reveal the maiden's age, cause of death, and even what she ate. Sacrifice some time to discover the ancient Inca peoples.
