National Geographic Thousands of Inca Mummies Raised From Their Graves: "Archaeologists recovering the bodies found many of them in "mummy bundles," large cocoons that held up to seven individuals and weighed as much as 400 pounds (180 kilograms). Some of the bundles bound adults and children—perhaps entire families—together, wrapped in layers of raw cotton and exquisite textiles." Puruchuco is on the central highway, tucked up against the dry foothills of the Andes. The Rimac River runs nearby. Also see the website for the TV program, "Inca Mummies, Secrets of a Lost World."
