Chav mother found in Peru

What? Oh, it’s mummified mummy. My mistake. When I read the headline I had images of her slouching around El Brujo with great big hoop earrings complaining that Shane had put chilli in her chocolate again and them bloody Spaniards ‘ave come over ‘ere and stolen all our gold.

The presence of fine items such as gold jewellery indicates the woman was an important person, anthropologist John Verano of Tulane University in the US said.

But the presence of war clubs surprised the archaeological team.

“Perhaps she was a female warrior, or may be the war clubs and spear throwers were symbols of power that were funeral gifts from men,”

Maybe I wasn’t wrong.
