Three bodies, entombed in a shrine near the 6,739 metre summit of the volcano, were identified as being over 500 years old. Further investigation showed that they were the remains of local children sacrificed in an ancient Inca ritual. The bodies provided a wealth of information about what life was like for the Inca in 16th century Central America, what the cultural significance of the ritual sacrifice was and, perhaps most amazingly, exonerated a Peruvian…
