Chinese Mummy

Chinese Mummy

Pictured (click for larger) is the mysterious mummy of the Lady of Dai, the wife of a Han Dynasty ruler, who lived over 2,000 years ago. What is surprising about this mummy is how well preserved it is. "When Lady Dai was found [in 1971] her skin was supple and her limbs could be manipulated; her hair was intact; her type A blood still ran red in her veins, and her internal organs were all intact," writes China Daily(1).
The mummification process which surpassed that of the Egyptians has baffled scientists who have pondered whether it was the sophisticated tomb construction or the strange liquid her body was immersed in, that kept her in such a fresh state. The National Geographic Channel will be airing a special in early September titled The Diva Mummy(2), that will explore the mysteries of this unique relic.
