The documentary "Las momias guanches" examines the discovery of a group of pre-Columbian mummies on the Canary Islands. The mummies, which date back to about 500 AD, are unusually well-preserved for their age, and reveal evidence of violence and trauma in their lives. The documentary also discusses the importance of vigilance in Guanakos society, and the ways in which Guanakos children are taught to defend themselves and survive in a violent world.

  • 00:00:00 The documentary, "Las momias guanches," tells the story of how three parts of ancient mummies have been discovered and studied, including before birth, during life, and after death. It also discusses the importance of the mummy studies and how they may provide new information about the life and death of the Guanche people, who lived on the Canary Islands in the Middle Ages.
  • 00:05:00 The documentary follows the research and study of the Las Momias de Guanches, a group of mummies found on the Canary Islands. The process of preserving and studying the mummies is detailed, with special care given to the hair. Some of the secrets revealed include the mummy's long history, the importance of the ocean to the culture, and the unique relationship between the people and the sea. The focus of the documentary shifts to the science of the mummy, with plans to study the DNA and other aspects of the mummies.
  • 00:10:00 The documentary "Las momias guanches" details the discovery of a group of pre-Columbian mummies on the Canary Islands, which had previously been thought uninhabited. After being met with hostility by the local population, the Spanish conquistadors were able to conquer the islands by force. The mummies of these people, who are known as "guanches", exhibit features that are strikingly different from those of the Egyptians, which threw the Spanish off guard. The mummies were carefully preserved by the embalmers, who were able to preserve both the skin and the muscle tissues of the bodies. It is now clear that this is not a mummy that has been embalmed without the use of chemicals, but rather a mummy that has been embalmed using a unique technique. The most spectacular result of the documentary is that the mummy has not been eviscerated, which is typical of Egyptian mummies. This incredible preservation is due to the fact that the Guanches used solar energy to construct their unique houses and boats.
  • 00:15:00 The Canarian mummy tradition involves carefully preserving the bodies of the dead, usually men, by embalming and covering them in elaborate clothing and adornments. This process is unique to the Canary Islands, where the bodies are not buried but left exposed to the elements, preserved by a combination of exposure to the sun and the smoke from a fire kept burning near the mummy. This method of preservation is thought to help speed the process of decomposition, and after 15 days the body is burned, the ashes deposited in an area of sand burned until black, and the bones scattered. The elite of the society would then make an offering to the gods and enter the mummies' eternal resting place.
  • 00:20:00 This documentary discusses the discovery of "Las momias guanches," or "the Guanakos," a preserved group of mummies found on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The mummies, which date back to about 500 AD, are unusually well-preserved for their age, and reveal evidence of violence and trauma in their lives. The documentary also discusses the importance of vigilance in Guanakos society, and the ways in which Guanakos children are taught to defend themselves and survive in a violent world.
  • 00:25:00 The video discusses the possible causes of death in mummy cases, and how trauma caused by violence can be seen in these remains. It also features interviews with individuals who participated in ancient warfare, including women warriors. The video concludes by discussing the process of extracting ancient DNA from the remains.
  • 00:30:00 Tenemos las librerías de adn antiguo en los tubos, if the concentration is high it means we've had success and we were able to obtain adn. If the concentration is low or nonexistent, it means the experiment has failed. The chronists who saw the canaries in 341 say the first thing they notice is that they don't know how to sail, they don't have any navigational skills. We introduce the sample here and select the protocol. We then measure adn. In this case, the concentration was high, and we saw that there were samples that gave good results. Remember, púrpura was practically exclusive to the emperor, for his clothing. The roman empire, attracted by its prestigious color, the color of imperial clothes, took interest in the islands where it could obtain the most expensive and exclusive color of the era, destined for the emperors. The most ancient human remains from Tenerife, dating from the 1st century AD, are roman. Guanche remains from the 2nd century AD, found on the islet of Lobos, demonstrate the presence of people working there with the healthy purpose of extracting púrpuras from our pretty seashell, m
  • 00:35:00 The documentary tells the story of how a Cueva de las Momias (Cave of the Mummies) on the island of Tenerife was discovered and explored by a group of adventurers in the 18th century. The cave contained hundreds of dead bodies, some in perfect condition and others in positions that suggested they were about to breathe again. The discovery caused a sensation among the intellectuals of Europe, and the myth of the cave and its mummies has been perpetuated ever since. Today, the entrance to the cave is still difficult to find, and the location remains a mystery.
  • 00:40:00 In this video, an expert discusses the possible location of a mythical "Guanche" burial ground. The video shows how the Las Momias Guanches documentary was able to use a machine called an infra-red and ultraviolet light to determine the location of the site. After centuries of speculation, the experts were not able to find any evidence of a written record or any indication that the burial ground ever existed. This new mystery arises as there is currently no word for the location in the available Spanish vocabulary.
  • 00:45:00 The documentary examines the discovery of human remains buried under ruins near a cave in the Canary Islands. The remains date back to the Middle Ages and have been studied and exhumed multiple times over the years. In 1833, French traveler Luis Roman noticed that one of the human skulls had a toupee-like hairpiece. This led to speculation that the Guanche people, an indigenous people of the Canary Islands, had practiced hechicería (magic). Roman's journey and the discovery of the hairpiece marked the beginning of modern scientific investigations into the Guanche people and their culture.
  • 00:50:00 The documentary, "Las momias guanches," follows the Attempts of the Guanche people to raise their children and educate them in their customs. They were careful of their livestock and took advantage of it, having enough corn to make money and meat from their livestock and fish from the sea. They also made offerings to their volcano to keep it in peace. They wanted their bodies to survive through time, without knowing that the future would bring an unexpected turn. The majority of Guanche deaths occurred from diseases that killed their crops. The other main cause of death for these infections was their mouths. In the end, death came inevitably, either in battle or in one's bed surrounded by loved ones. This mummy, around 45 or 50 years old at the time of death, likely had no dental problems. The paranasal sinuses were also unaffected. When I closed my eyes, I wished that this wasn't the end. However, what happened after my death was something impossible to imagine. The investigation of the mummy from the Barranco de Erques is nearing its end at this moment, and the forensic sculptor Juan Villa is currently reconstructing her facial features. Today is a very exciting day for us here at the workshop of forensic sculpture
  • 00:55:00 The video discusses the origins of the Guanche people, with 17 percent of their ancestry being aboriginal. There is a sense of identity among some Guanche people, but there are also many cases where they are well-known for having married Spaniards, those from high-status indigenous tribes who had lost their social status to the Spaniards. They eventually merged with other groups who had a similar social status and opposition to the Spaniards. The Guanche world always remains present, even after centuries of study. In addition, the canaries' unique sense of song and their proud future prospects are still evident today, centuries after they were first studied and named. Finally, I would like to say that you should be proud of your Guanche heritage, wherever you may be.
