Mummy on the Silk Road

mummysnap

Episode one of NHK’s New Silk Road series covers the ancient civilization of the Takla Makan desert, in the center of the Eurasian landmass, currently in China. There is a mummified woman with European facial features, who is still beautiful even though she’s been dead for over 3,000 years (stunning because this is definitely not what you expect in a mummy).
