Patreon: Facebook: Twitter: Steemit: Narration By Don Moffit: Road workers within the Jiangsu Province of China, recently made an astonishing discovery. At a depth of 6 feet, while building a new road in the area, a mysterious sealed concrete box was found. A chamber which local archaeologists soon dated at 700 years old. Inside, a lady was found, believed to have been a high-ranking individual from the Ming Dynasty - the once ruling power of China from between 1368 and 1644. Archaeologists, from the nearby Museum of Taizhou, were called into excavate the area. They were surprised by the remarkably good condition of the woman's skin, hair, eyelashes and face. “It was as though she had only recently died.” They said. Her body, which measures 1.5 metres high, was found at the construction site immersed in ground water. The mummy is wearing traditional Ming dynasty costume, and was found with bones, ceramics, ancient writings and other relics. Thanks to the geological layout of the area, between 1979 and 2008 five other mummies have also been found in the area, all were also in very good condition. Director of the Museum of Taizhou, Wang Weiyin, told Xinhua that the mummy's clothes are made mostly of silk, with a little cotton. He said usually silk and cotton are very hard to preserve, yet excavations have found that this mummifying technology was used preserved such materials, a technique reserved for only very high-profile funerals. An incredible, rare and informative find.
