Lady Dai - Worlds well-preserved ancient human remains

Lady Dai of the Han Dynasty, is China’s eternal mummy. Her skin was still soft, and her arms and legs could flex at the joints, and remains to this day, the most well-preserved ancient human ever discovered. 

Found over 2,000 years after her death, one of the world’s well- preserved ancient human remains were buried in a mysterious liquid that scientists still can’t replicate. Despite the fact that she had been buried for over two millennia, her skin was still moist and elastic, her joints still flexible, every feature still remained intact down to her eyelashes and the hair in her nostrils, and blood still remained in her veins.

 When she was removed from the tomb, Oxygen took an immediate toll on her body and so the state in which she is seen today does not accurately reflect how she was found. Nevertheless, when forensic scientists conducted an autopsy on the Diva Mummy, they were stunned to discover that the body was in the same state as an individual who had recently died.

The autopsy revealed that all her organs were still intact, even down to the lungs vagus (nerve), which is as thin as hair. Blood clots were found in her veins and evidence was found of a coronary heart attack, as well as a host of other ailments and diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, liver disease, and gallstones. The Lady Dai died of a heart attack at the age of 50, brought on by obesity, lack of exercise and an over-indulgent diet.

When they were still studying her organs, the pathologists found 138 undigested melon seeds in her oesophagus, stomach, and intestines. Melon seeds take about 1 hour to digest so scientists were able to determine that she died shortly after eating some melons.

Archaeologists and pathologists have not determined all the factors behind her state of preservation, but they have a few clues.
