News report from Chinese government managed social media news brand China Daily has it that an ancient mummy has been discovered in Peru.

A mummy is a body of a human being or animal that has been ceremonially preserved by removal of the internal organs, treatment with natron and resin, and wrapping in bandages.

Thought to be between 800 to 1200 years
old, a mummy found in Peru went on display in Lima on Tuesday. The pre-incan mummy lays in a fetal position tied with ropes, which was probably a local burial ritual.

In November, Peruvian archaeologists
disclosed the finding of human remains in an underground tomb, surrounded by pots, ceramics, gourds containing vegetable remains and stone tools.
