Tattered bodies

This forearm is no longer attached to its body. The red and black elaborate hand tatoo hints at something very interesting about this person's culture and identity. But random, scattered body parts thrown around isn't the best provenience for an archaeologist. What was this person buried with? It's a good bet that the looters made off with the elaborate, more marketable items.
