Incan sacrificial victim’s remains found in Peru

The bones of an Incan woman sacrificied more than 2,000 years ago have been found in Peru.

Baptized the “Lady of Pacopampa” after the site in the northern highlands where she was found, she was 1.55 meters (five feet one inch) tall, and was surrounded in her tomb with several gold artifacts including pendants, necklaces and plates, according to the researchers.

Seki said the woman was between 30 and 40 years old and lived 800 to 900 years before Christ, which would make the Lady of Pacopampa considerably older than most excavated or mummified bodies found in Peru.
