Caption: Mummy amongst cloth and artefacts in a desert. Mummies such as this are found in several cemetery sites in the arid highlands of southern Peru. The extreme dryness has preserved the mummies, some of which still possess even their skin and hair. These are the remains of people who inhabited the area around 2000 years ago. Many of the cemeteries have been ransacked by grave robbers, and bones and other remains are scattered on the sand.
