    ... mummy room' was good. The climatic conditions were conducive to preservation. Several were on display. There were similarities to a Siberian tribe in burial rights, perhaps surprising since the Uighurs hailed from that area. The Uighurs came to the area in the 9th c AD.

Much of early history is revealed by (sometimes accidental) discoveries of ancient burial sites. The dry conditions have preserved many artifacts. What intrigues me, is that the oldest bodies recovered (in Urumqi) are non Chinese. I would say they are Kaukasian. Apparently the Indo-European races spread ...
