Incredible Archaeological Discovery

Teenage girl 14-15 years old, who had sacrificed some 500 years ago, all of the last century lay on the ice at the top shestitysyachnika, contributing excellent safety.
Next to her, frozen bodies of two more young victims: seven year old boy and a six-year girl.
Instead of the traditional analysis of DNA, scientists have studied the proteins in the tissue, and found that in apparently healthy girl had a bacterial lung infection resembling tuberculosis. For the first time the infection was detected in mummies.

A team of researchers at New York University (City University of New York), led by Angelica Kortels (Angelique Corthals) examined samples of mummies (known as Maiden, "Maid")
Unique mummy was discovered in 1999 on the side of a volcano Lyulyaylyako (Llullaillaco), which rises to 6739 meters above sea level on the border between Argentina and Chile.
Found three mummies, which, in contrast to the embalmed Egyptian "colleagues" were deep-frozen. The body has also undergone a seven year old boy studying, but explore the remains of a six-year girl, scientists still are not solved. Perhaps once it was struck by lightning, which could affect the accuracy of the results of the study.
Rather, the three children were sacrificed, as evidenced by being close to them artifacts of gold, silver, clothes, bowls with food and extravagant headdress of white feathers of unknown birds.

Historians suggest that the children were selected by the Incas for their beauty (in addition, children were considered more pure beings than adults) and sacrificed. Incas is not often brought children into the victim.

B Previous studies have established that prior to sacrifice them, throughout the year, children were fed "elite" foods - maize and dried llama meat, though before they ate exclusively a peasant food, consisting of potatoes and vegetables.
