claudia patino's curator insight, January 16, 9:17 PM

Chavin de  Huantar gets my attention because it is a phyramid in peru that had a castle inside it which was measured ans it large. It sits at the top and nature did not damage it, well not as much considering this is thousands of years old. it was unfortinate that a landslide occured because if it never occured we would know more about this Peruvian pyramid.

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, January 29, 11:43 PM

I find it odd how fast our paradigms can shift; less than 100 ears ago this was viewed as a oddiy and a rare work of art; it has mistique and the essence of a long gone era. Today these are treated a international treasures to be prized studied and mainteained, so anyone can see it for years to come.

Mark Townsend's curator insight, January 31, 7:21 PM

We didn't know much about the anatomy of this mummy until technology was put to use. The researchers were able to grasp an idea of bone structure, brains, heart, lungs, etc.. Really interesting stuff to compare to the modern day human.

Jordan Varona's curator insight, February 1, 2:26 AM

Who doesn't want to learn more about Mummys? Cool stuff.
