Inuit Mummies, Qilaqitsoq, Greenland
The discovery of the Qilakitsoq mummies occurred in October of 1972, by the brothers Hans and Jokum Gronvold. Qilakitsoq was an old Inuit settlement in Greenland. Although the mummies were discovered in 1972, from dis-interest of the National Museum, nothing was done to rescue the bodies until 1977, when a new director was appointed to the museum. There were 6 women, a small boy and a baby found, all wrapped in seal skin and enclosed in stone tomb.
Nature of Preservation
The bodies at Qilakitsoq were preserved naturally in the freezing temperatures within their stoney tombs.
The overhanging rock and cold temperatures led to immediate freezing of the bodies tissues. The mummies being encased by stone created a perfect environment for mummification
