Secrets of the mummy —revealed! Ancient human grave sites speak volumes to those who listen. These haunting human "time capsules" have been uncovered all over the world.

Others' stories are known only to the ages, like a cache of elaborately adorned 7,000-year-old mummies unearthed in Chile, and the thousands of Egyptian mummies actually burned as train fuel in the 19th century.
