Caption: Peruvian mummy research. Researchers analysing specimens from the mummy of a young woman (foreground), which is held at the Darder Museum in Girona, Spain. It originates from Peru and dates from around 1200 years ago. The mummy has tattoos on one of her arms. Ongoing anthropological research using forensic and X-ray techniques is attempting to discover her role in society, and her cause of death. The researchers are geneticist Coralee Castillo (left) and Mercedes Gonzalez (right), director of the IECIM (Instituto Estudios Cientificos de Momias). Photographed in 2013, in the laboratory of Gonzalez, in Madrid, Spain.
