Peruvian archaeologists have discovered a pre-Inca mummy, between 800 and 1,200 years old, tied with ropes on the outskirts of Lima, an excavation official told AFP.

The mummy, which has its face covered with its hands, is presumably a man between the ages of 18 and 22, buried between 800 and 1200 AD It was discovered in a 1.40 meter deep conical burial chamber at the archaeological site of Cajamarquilla, 24 km east of Lima.

“This is a mummy tied with ropes,” archaeologist Pieter Van Dalen, head of the Cajamarquilla project, told AFP. “It is a particular and unique characteristic” for the time and place, according to him.

In the same burial chamber, the skeleton of a guinea pig and that of another animal that could be a dog, which also contained the remains of corn and other plants, have been unearthed.

According to Mr. Van Dalen, Cajamarquilla was an important urban center, with approximately 10,000 to 20,000 inhabitants, built around 200 BC and which remained occupied until the 16th century AD.
