Eyes of Two Mummies Restored in California Lab

A team of scientists in California has restored the eyes of two Chilean mummies and plans to use them to investigate ancient diseases.

One eye came from the mummified remains of a two-year-old boy who died a thousand years ago. The other eye belongs to a 23-year-old woman who died about 750 years ago. Both bodies were naturally preserved in Chile’s arid Atacama Desert.
