A previously unidentified female mummy was killed in a ritual sacrifice in South America, new research has found.
The mummified woman is over 500 years old, and would have died in her early 20s.
She is thought to have arrived in Germany after a Bavarian princess brought her back from an expedition to South America in 1898 . . .
