2,000-Year-Old Chinese Mummy still has Blood in her Veins, Making Her one of the World’s Best-Preserved Mummies

2,000-Year-Old Chinese Mummy still has Blood in her Veins, Making Her one of the World's Best-Preserved Mummies

In 163 BC, Xin Zhui died. Her hair remained intact, her skin was tender to the touch, and her veins still held blood when her corpse was discovered in 1971. She was the wife of Han official Li Cang, who held a prominent position in the Han regime (the Marquis of Dai)

Her corpse was discovered in 21 liters of a liquid that was slightly acidic and had traces of magnesium, wrapped in twenty layers of silk cloth. Her blood was discovered to be type group-A. She is a Han dynasty lady who has been mummified (206 BC-220 AD). Her hair is still there, her skin is soft to the touch, and her body is as supple as a living person’s. She is commonly regarded as the world’s best-preserved human mummy.

When Xin Zhui’s preserved body was discovered, it was instantly compromised, and her body began to deteriorate. As a result, the photos we see now don’t do justice to the first finding.
