Mummy of Moche Woman Discovered

The BBC reports that a tattooed mummy of a 1,500 year-old female Moche warrior has been discovered in Peru.
A tattooed mummy has been found in Peru which archaeologists say is one of the best-ever relics of a civilisation that ended more than 1,300 years ago.

The mummy, herself 1,500 years old, is of a woman in her 20s, believed to be an elite member of the Moche tribe.

The skeleton of an adolescent girl offered in sacrifice was found with a rope still around its neck.

The archaeologists from Peru and the US found the mummy at a site called El Brujo on the north coast near Trujillo.
The archaeologists believe the woman was an important member of society based on her jewelry and possibly a female warrior. The BBC link also has an interesting video about the discovery.
