Biography: Johan Reinhard, Anthropologist
You may know him as the mummy man whose Andes discoveries win headlines worldwide. But Johan Reinhard got his start planting telegraph poles in his native Midwest, on a line gang filled with Southerners. Then 16, Reinhard delighted in decoding “these strange men.” When he learned his hobby had a name—anthropology—he was off.

Exuberant athleticism and a ravenous intellect drove Reinhard across deserts, down unexplored rivers, and to Earth’s highest archaeological sites. Today his quest continues, both in the field and online. “Sometimes I even surf when exploring,” he says, “using my satellite phone.”
