2,000-year-old remains heading back to Peru after 6 decades in Texas museum

South Bend Tribune, August 17, 2018

"A 2,000-year-old mummy that has been in the Corpus Christi Science and History Museum's possession for more than 60 years will finally make its way home.

Jillian Becquet, a collections manager for the museum, and Madeline Fontenot, its assistant director of education, began the process of repatriating the ancient mummy to its country of origin two years ago.

The mummy will finally be returned to its native Peru sometime in September, after a year of research through the museum's archive system, decades of scrapbooks, old newspaper articles, and with the help of Driscoll Children's Hospital."
