Abstract

The Iberian Peninsula, due to its geographic position and mild climate with high summer temperatures, is a rather goog place for spontaneous mummification processes to take place. These environmetal favourable conditions are dimished by a transit form North to South which can be considered as fundamental. Thus, in the Cantabrian and South Pyrenean region mummified bodies are not frequent and are only found in religious sites. At the same time they are highly present in the culture and folk traditions to which they offer a great variety of manifestations and assumed therapeutic virtues. Six cases known in the Basque Country and the present state of research is described.
