A mummy of a 15-year old girl, who was frozen for 500 years, was found in 1999 in Argentina. Even though it has been concluded that this girl’s body was lifeless for five centuries, when she was found her body was perfectly preserved. According to some foreign media, she was chosen as a sacrifice to the gods for religious reasons.
There is a belief that in the early ages in Argentina, teenagers were taken to the high mountain tops, were fed with coca leaves and upon reaching the burial site, the children were given an intoxicating drink.
It is believed that this girl called “The Maiden” was killed in this way. Watch the video:
Recently, scientists have discovered that this girl had a bacterial infection when she was sacrificed. They say that the bacterial infection is similar to tuberculosis. They think that this discovery could potentially help in the treatment of the modern illnesses.
