Mysterious 4,000 Year Old European Mummie Found in China

From Denny: This red-haired European mummie was preserved in the deserts of far western China by first freezing and then baking and then freezing again. It's amazing that she looks as if she had only been buried about 20 years ago - not as long as 4,000 years ago! You can see she had curly eyelashes.

She is part of the Silk Road exhibit the Chinese finally allowed out of their country. Bowers Museum in Orange Country, California, negotiated for decades to receive this exhibit.
