Photo of the “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 500 years, her body had been preserved at 82 ft. She is considered to be the best preserved Andean mummy ever.

The Rosetta Stone has the same inscription written in three languages; Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, Demotic, and Greek. Its discovery in 1799 was key to figuring out the hieroglyphic writing system, thus allowing modern historians to unlock the contents of many manuscripts and carvings that were previously unknown. The Rosetta Stone is currently located in the British Museum.
