Update on the Oldest Mummies in the World in Peru
CNN has a report on the oldest mummies in the world, the Chinchorro mummies of Peru, which date back to 5000 BCE, 2000 years older than the Egyptian mummies. They hope for UNESCO status, and the building of a new wing of an area museum to display the mummies.

And Wikipedia has a very detailed article on these mummies;
