Mummies of Nasca
The latest results

On this page are presented the latest actions of the Instituto Inkari Cusco and its partners about Nasca’s mummies: rock and metals analyzes, Victoria skin histology, C14 dating, DNA analysis and high-level scans. definition.

All these results were presented on 19 November 2018 at the Congress of the Republic of Peru at a working meeting led by Congressman Armando Villanueva followed by a press conference.

Rock and metals

Samples of rock and metals were analyzed by INGEMMET laboratory in Lima, Peru. The analysis of this report was made by Lilian Cristofol, Materials Science engineer / characterization. 6 samples were analyzed:

Chemical composition of rock and metals
RockSedimentary rock of sandstone type.
Possible presence of diatoms.
Concordant with the geology of Peru.
Josephina metallic implant85% copperComposition concordant with an object of pre-Columbian period.
Presence of oxidation and alteration attesting to its age.
Annular metallic implant of a three-fingered hand78% iron
16% chromium
5% carbon
Does not correspond to an object of pre-Columbian period: civilizations not mastering the extraction and the work of the iron.
Metal implant of a three-fingered hand60% gold
30% silver
10% copper
Composition concordant with an object of pre-Columbian period. Alloy known as tumbaga.
Metallic implant of Alberto's hip50% silver
25% copper
Concordant with the type compositions listed for pre-Columbian period objects.
Metal object shaped cross73% gold
18% copper
7% silver
Characteristic alloy of pre-Columbian manufactured objects, the tumbaga.

Histology

Examination of the molecular composition of different samples

As part of The Alien Project, five samples of different mummies parts body found site of Nazca (Peru) were sent to me for examination of their molecular composition by midinfrared spectroscopy. This technology makes it possible to identify the  (bio) chemical composition of any sample made of organic matter. The present expertise aims to analyze these mummified fragments.
The analysis were conducted at the Dupuy de Lôme Research Institute (UMR CNRS 6027) in Vannes (France).

HD scanners

Despite the difficulties encountered, we were able to realize High Definition scanners (16 cuts interpolated to 128) early August 2018. The 3 DICOM files (Josefina, Wawita and Maria) were processed by one of our contributors, Gustavo. Thanks to his colossal work, we can present images and videos of these 3 bodies herewith.
