An unusual visitor paid the ancient city of Peru a visit - a pre-Hispanic mummy, which was estimated to be anywhere between 600 to 800 years old. The particular mummy was found by the police in a delivery bag, labeled as 'Pedidos Ya,' alongside three men, who were drinking in a deserted park in the Peruvian city of Puno. The mummy was in the possession of a 26-year-old man, Julio Cesar Bermejo, who referred to it as his “spiritual girlfriend” and named it ‘Juanita.’

In an interview with the local media, Julio Cesar Bermejo shared that he had been sharing his room with the centuries-old skeleton, whom he had mistakenly assumed to be a female. He said that the mummy was given to him by his father and had been a part of his family for 30 years. He denied that he was trying to sell the mummy and said that he was carrying it around because “my friends wanted to see it.”

The police detained the man and the mummy was taken by the Ministry of Culture of Peru with the aim of protecting and preserving the heritage. Peru is home to a number of archaeological sites and objects. The most popular tourist attraction is the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, located near Cusco, which was built in the 15th century. The discovery of the pre-Hispanic mummy in Peru has left archaeologists and historians intrigued and perplexed. The mummy was in the fetal position and wrapped in bandages. It was found to be a male, not a female, as believed by Julio Cesar Bermejo. How the mummy was preserved for so many years and how it ended up in the hands of Bermejo is a matter of question, which is yet to be discovered.

Moreover, the incident has raised questions about the protection of Peruvian heritage and the need to impose strict laws and regulations to protect these ancient artifacts from falling into the wrong hands. The government must ensure that heritage sites are preserved and protected from any kind of destruction and looting. The authorities must also formulate stricter laws to prevent the smuggling of these ancient artifacts.
