  Chauchilla Cemetary

A little ways out of the town itself is this cemetary wich apparently contains thousands of graves, though only a few are visible to see.

Though they've been looted by grave robbers for anything of value that was burried with them, the peoples remains are quite well preserved. Some even have hair left, while others have elongated skulls (kinda like chinese footbinding, they squeezed the head for it to grow up and not out).

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
