Unraveling Ancient Secrets

Contact: cprevi@lsuhsc.edu

Mummies conjure up images of kids in Halloween costumes or scary movies for most, but Professor of Radiology Carlos Previgliano, MD, has a different perspective. He has been involved in discovering the past of three well-preserved Incan mummies since their discovery in Argentina in 1999. Dr. Previgliano flew back to Argentina in August to rescan the mummies and plans to continue his research. This video has more about his experiences, which will also be detailed in a Mummies Alive episode on the Smithsonian Channel next year.
