Partial mummies found in Mexico

Published on August 3rd, 2011 | by Admin


Two partially-mummified bodies have been found in Giant’s Cave in Chihuahua, Mexico.

According to the specialists, the finding of the mummified individuals, which are thought to be between 800 and 1000 years old, are part of a Pre-hispanic burial ground, since, between 2010 and 2011, ten mummies and thirteen skeletons have been found in the cave.

Archaeologist Enrique Chacón, in charge of the Cueva El Gigante Archaeological Project, informed that the finding of the last two mummies and the skeleton was registered recently while excavation, documentation and register work was being finished on site. The mummies found last year, were found by three young men that reported them to the authorities who then called on INAH’s experts to investigate.
