Episode Summary

Celebration of Death
Scotty travels to the northern coast of Peru, where archeologists have discovered a teenage girl buried in a strange place - just outside an empty tomb. Scotty's investigation takes him deep into the world of the Moche, an ancient society where corn beer and blood offerings were essential elements in their annual burial rituals. Was this teenager sacrificed to the gods by a Moche overlord? Or was she worked to death, and then honored in death during a blood-soaked festival?moreless
