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.

It portrays an ancient symbolism about life and the trip to Hades with a return back to life. A gap between the two parts of the board is supposed to represent the River-Ocean that separates the world of the living from the world of the dead

Medical instruments Herculaneum, ancient shoreline These medical instruments were found in the remains of their original carrying case. They included six bronze scalpels, two hooks, a pair of forceps, a probe and a needle. With them was a small slate tablet, used, perhaps, to sharpen instruments or mix ointments. We can never know whether this case was carried by its owner in order to safeguard the tools of his trade, or in a valiant attempt to help any wounded.
