Preserved mummy of 500-year-old Inca 'Ice Maiden' wows visitors

Llullaillaco Maiden-a 15 year old girl sacrificed during the Inca Empire for both purposes of religious rite and social control. She was chosen a year prior to her death, fed a ritualistic diet for an approximate twelve months to make her gain weight, then was drugged and left on the shrine at Volcano Llullaillaco, where she was left to die of exposure. For five hundred years, her body had been preserved. She is considered to be the best preserved Andean mummy ever uncovered
