Overview

Ten years ago, anthropologist Johan Reinhard, accompanied by Argentine and Peruvian colleagues, uncovered a sacred site at 22,000-feet on Mt. Llullaillaco. Beneath rock and ice, they discovered three Inca children each perfectly preserved. A six-year-old girl, a seven-year-old boy and a 15-year-old teenager they named the Maiden.


Now, after more than five centuries, through the revelations of science and technology, we can finally tell their story. Forensic pathologists investigate the mummified bodies for answers: why they traveled nearly 1,000 miles, surviving the extremes of the desert and the threat of dangerous predators only to be killed upon arrival at their final destination? Who were they? Why were they chosen? National Geographic investigates these child mummies to piece together their final days and uncover the motivations of the ancient society that led them to their deaths.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc.

The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.

    Comments about Child Mummy Sacrifice DVD Exclusive:

    Use this in class to cover the Inca and specifically their traditions of child sacrifice when comparing and contrasting the Inca with Maya and Aztecs.
