Ice Mummies of the Inca

In September 1996, high-altitude archaeologist Johan Reinhard led an expedition to the summit of Sara Sara in Peru in search of frozen sacrificial mummies. Reinhard's expedition was filmed by the BBC as part of the three-part series "Ice Mummies" and documented on this Web site as a NOVA/PBS Online Adventure. Here you'll find daily accounts and images from the expedition, e-mail questions and the responses from the team, and much more.
