Two mummies found in ancient Peru cemetery

Two pre-Columbian mummies more than a thousand years old were found in a pre-Incan cemetery in a suburb of Lima, archeologists said Thursday. "This is one of the most important finds in more than three decades of excavation, because both mummies are intact," Gladys Paz told AFP at the foot of the Huaca Pucllana tomb, an ancient religious complex in the Miraflores neighborhood. The first signs of the tomb were found five days ago, but the process of unearthing the mummies of an adult and child took time.
