    Regarding the fetus-a first trimester child has enough cartilage or bone structure that they would have remains? I am wondering if there was more than bones found then....would any of the remains have been mummified by the dryness??

    Very good questions believe09. I haven't seen exactly how far along the Mother of this fetus was in gestation.

    I did a brief search and I won't post links because I hope that someone who is knowledgeble will come and post facts on the development of a fetus.

    From what I could glean the skeleton of a fetus may begin to develop as early as 10 weeks gestation. (first trimester)

    By week 15 the bone and marrow may develop.

    As for the other question, I too wondered if there might have been some mumification due to the elements there in NM of not only the adult victims but the fetus as well.

    It will be interesting to learn if someone can post that information.

    I believe that the woman was 4 months pregnant. At 16 weeks she would have developed some bone tissue. As for mummification I am not sure.
