Peruvian mummy research. Tuft of hair from a mummy being analysed by researcher Mercedes Gonzalez, director of the IECIM (Instituto Estudios Cientificos de Momias). The hair is from the mummy of a young woman, held at the Darder Museum in Girona, Spain. It originates from Peru and dates from around 1200 years ago. Ongoing anthropological research using forensic and X-ray techniques is attempting to discover her role in society, and her cause of death. Photographed in 2013, in the laboratory of Gonzalez, in Madrid, Spain.
