Preservation Of The Species

These two examples of mummified humans have turned up on the internet this week. The first is a man found in a mining tunnel in Western Iran in 1993. He's carbon dated at 1700 years old. He appears to be a high ranking gentleman and has a wound to his head but no-one knows who he is or how he got there.

The second is a young Inca girl found in 1999. She was 15 years old when she died.
