In 1972, the Uummannaq area came to the world's attention when hunters found the best preserved human remains ever discovered in North America. The "Greenland Mummies" were found at an abandoned settlement called Qilakitsoq, and have been dated to about A.D. 1475 ± 50 years.
Eight mummies (six women and two children) were found in two gravesites near the former coastal settlement of Qllakitsoq, Greenland, a desolate area. Two hunters, brothers Hans Gronvold and his brother Jokum, made the discovery that October.
