Peru: Archaeologists have discovered 1,000-year-old pre-Inca mummies, some with 'false heads'

Archaeologists in Peru have discovered burials of at least 73 people dating back about 1,000 years ago, several hundred years earlier than the dominance of the Incas in western South America.


Each of them was wrapped in cloth, some of which was brightly colored, and secured with rope. The male and female remains were accompanied by wooden and ceramic masks, commonly called "false heads,"
