A few days ago, the Chilean Investigative Police (PDI) reported that some farmers found a grave with two child mummies and a woman's skeleton dated to over 900 years, in addition to various objects such as ceramic pots and probably toys.

The mummies were found 800 kilometers from the capital of the country, in the sector of Iglesia Colorada in the Fundo Bauza, being the first discovery of this style made in this region. The bodies were found wrapped in camelid cloth and vegetable fibers, which is why its state of conservation has been very good.

They most certainly belonged to the Copiapó culture, a pre-Hispanic group that inhabited the Atacama region during the Late Intermediate Period, located between the years 1000 and 1400, this year in which it merged with different Diaguita populations that were subject to the Incas.

The first analyzes have determined that the children would be between five and seven years old of age at the time of death, while the woman would be between 50 and 60 years old old.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
