Detmolder Kindermumie

( Detmold child )

Detmold child is the name of a mummy found in Peru. The mummy has been identified to be about 6,500 years old, making it one of the oldest preserved mummies ever found. It was named The Detmold child by its owners Lippisches Landesmuseum in Detmold, in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.

Originally the mummy was owned by the Völkerkundliches Museum (Ethnological Museum) of the city of Witzenhausen. After an affection of mould was recognised on the mummy, it was donated to Lippisches Landesmuseum (Lippe State Museum) Detmold in 1987, where it was professionally conserved. In 2010 the mummy was examined in context of the German Mummy Project and the cultural historical importance of this object was realised.
