Explore Her Hair, The Mummy, and more!

Inca braids. This is the back of the head of a woman who was killed by several severe hits by a sharp object to her skull. Isotopes in her hair, which had been held with bands made of alpaca or llama hair, indicate that she lived near the coastline of Peru or Chile, and ate a diet high in seafood and maize. She was dying from Chagas disease, caused by parasites, when she was killed. She was probably then buried in the dry sands of the Atacama Desert, which preserved her body.

A mysterious mummy that sat in a German collection for over a century was once an Incan woman who was murdered with blunt-force trauma to the head, new research suggests.

Braided with a flourish, the hair on Osterby Man, a body dug from a bog in northern Germany, is wound in an Iron Age style called a Swabian knot. Tacitus, a Roman historian, wrote that free men belonging to a group called the Suevians wore their hair like this and that young warriors from other Germanic tribes copied the style. “They thus dress when proceeding to war," wrote Tacitus, “and deck their heads so as to add to their height and terror in the eyes of the enemy.”

A severed head was discovered wrapped in a cape of deerskin with the hair on top still intact, tied in a Swabian knot, and discolored red from thousands of years in the bog. Scientists hypothesize that the head alone was used as a sacrifice.

Ötzi The Iceman ~ Ötzi is a well-preserved natural mummy of a man who lived around 3,300 BCE. He was found in the Ötztal Alps on the Austrian–Italian border. A couple years ago, Ötzi’s genome was sequenced using a pelvic bone sample weighing just 0.1 grams. Non-hominoid sequences (NON-HUMAN DNA) were detected with the mummified remains. If all this isn't controversial enough, Ötzi is CURSED. Several people connected to the discovery, recovery, and subsequent examination of Ötzi, have died.
