Hutton Pulitzer Reports: Why Is This Ancient Mummy So Well Preserved? #HuttonPulitzer

This Chinese woman has been preserved for over 2,100 years and she’s baffled scientists.

Called the Lady of Dai, she’s considered the best-preserved mummy ever discovered.

Her skin is soft, her arms and legs can bend, her internal organs are intact, and she still has her own Type-A blood, hair and eyelashes.

The Lady of Dai, also known as Xin Zhui, lived during the Han dynasty (206 BCE – 220 AD) and was the wife of the Marquis of Dai.

Her tomb was discovered inside a hill known as Mawangdui, in Changsha, Hunan, China, in 1971 when workers were digging an air raid shelter.

According to an autopsy, Xin Zhui was overweight, suffered from back pain, high blood pressure, clogged arteries, liver disease, gallstones, diabetes and had a severely damaged heart.
