The discovery of a 1,200-year-old mummy that retains its hair, skin and teeth

The discovery of a 1,200-year-old mummy that retains its hair, skin and teeth  A group of archaeologists in Peru found a mummy from the pre-Inca era, between 800 and 1200 years old, and her skin and locks of her hair were preserved.  Archaeologists have found the well-preserved remains of a teenage mummy in "perfect" condition at a depth of more than 2 meters (6.5 feet) on the outskirts of the Peruvian capital, Lima, at the Cajamarquilla archaeological site.  Team leader Yomira Huaman, from the University of San Marcos in Lima, told AFP that the child's remains, which were found in a tomb covered with a large rock, indicate that his age was likely 12 or 13 years old.  Cajamarquilla was a mud-brick city around 200 BC, in the pre-Inca period, and was occupied until about 1500. It is believed to have been home to 10,000 to 20,000 people.  Huaman said that the high salt content in the sand in the area likely caused the child to be mummified naturally, and his gender has not been determined.  Parts of the skin remained on the arms and legs, while hair was found on the head, which had been separated from the body. There were also remnants of teeth in the jaw.  "The discovery is very important because it is well preserved," Huaman said. Next to the mummy, the team found a stone weapon, a plate, a copper needle, textile remains, corn and hot pepper.  In February 2022, archaeologists found 20 mummies, including those of eight children, at the archaeological site of Cajamarquilla.         History records the Emirati achievement through the first Arab astronaut to walk in space A video clip showed astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi stepping as the first Arab citizen into outer space, which is considered a historic Emirati Arab achievement.  Thus, Al-Neyadi, son of the United Arab Emirates, takes the first Arab steps outside the International Space Station.  Earlier today, Friday, the "Mohammed bin Rashid Space Center" announced that Emirati astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi will leave the space station today, Friday, on a historic mission to open space.  The center indicated that Al Neyadi will carry out this task within the framework of the tasks assigned to Mission 69 on board the International Space Station, which is an achievement for the UAE.  According to the information provided by the center, Al-Neyadi will go out on his mission to open space with the American astronaut Stephen Bowen of NASA, and the mission is expected to last approximately 6.5 hours.
