Jewellery Found on a 700 Year Old Woman's Body

A 700-year old mummy has been discovered by road workers in eastern China! The women is believed to be from Ming Dynasty era in China from 1368 to 1644 and was found by chance by a team of road workers in the city of Taizhou in the Jiangsu Province of China. Amazingly the women’s features from head to two are in their original condition. The women’s skin, hair and eyelashes are still noticeable after all these years. The women was discovered two metres below the grounds surface. When the discovery was found last month the nearby museums archaeologists where called to study the women and to excavate the area she was discovered in. It was surprising how the woman was in such good condition after hundreds of years and was still wearing a ring on her finger, showing that women 700 years ago wore impressive jewellery. The ring represents the jewellery that was worn in China 700 years ago during the Ming Dynasty. The stone in the ring is a green colour, indicating that the stone could be Chinese Jade. During the Ming Dynasty in China Ming or nephrite jade was extensively used to cave jewellery and functional objects. The ring may be a sign of the women’s power and wealth. The woman’s body measures 1.5 metres high and was discoveed in a coffin, which also contained bones, ceramics, ancient writings and other relics. Workers in the same area have found in the past five other mummies, which were also in immaculate condition.
