Andes Expedition: Searching for Inca Secrets
In 1995, anthropologist Johan Reinhard and his Peruvian assistant, Miguel Zarate, found the ice maiden atop Mount Ampato in Peru. You can read the story of their discovery of this well-preserved, five-century old teenage girl at this National Geographic interactive site. Then, review a virtual autopsy and learn what killed her, or join Reinhard as he returns to the Andes in search of more Inca religious sites.
