Only six years old at death, a child, probably a boy, from a disturbed grave wears a tangled reminder of his humanity. Water is a mummys enemy, says anthropologist John Verano. If a body decomposes in a humid place, the hair will slide right off. But in Puruchucos dry, dusty climate, it is common to find scalps with hair still attached.
