Sutter Examines 2,000-year-old Peruvian Mummy Bundles
mummy bundle Richard Sutter, professor and chair of the Department of Anthropology, collected data on four mummies at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City and the Peabody Museum at Harvard in late January 2010 as part of a research team studying mummies and mummy bundles. The project will document the social and biological information for "Paracas Necropolis"-mummies from the south coast desert of Peru.

The remains had tattoos or painting on their skin and were wrapped in multiple layers of elaborate and colorful embroidered textiles containing fancy gold offerings, exotic feathers from the Amazon, and other foreign objects.
