Whoa, 700-Year-Old Mummy Discovered In China And It Doesn’t Want To

Introduction

I’m not a superstitious person, but there’s something about the 700-year-old mummy discovered in China that gives me the willies. You would think that after all this time, he’d want to be buried with his beloved shoes…

A 700-year-old mummy discovered in a recently unearthed coffin in Taizhou City, Jiangsu Province, China, was found wearing sneakers and “doesn’t seem to want to leave” them behind.

A 700-year-old mummy discovered in a recently unearthed coffin in Taizhou City, Jiangsu Province, China, was found wearing sneakers and “doesn’t seem to want to leave” them behind.

The discovery of the mummy has led researchers to believe that it was a Buddhist monk from the era when Buddhism was most popular in China. The monk is thought to have died while wearing the shoes, and they were placed on him by his followers as part of his burial rites.

The sneakers are said to be very well-preserved due to their age and lack of exposure to direct sunlight or rainwater. They are also reportedly still wearable despite their age; however, archaeologists have not yet tried them on for size but plan on doing so once they are removed from their resting place in order not to disturb what may be left inside them after so many years underground

The skeleton is thought to be of a Buddhist monk who lived during the Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368), and it’s been hailed as a significant discovery by archaeologists.

The remains were found curled up inside a rock-solid cocoon made of clay and plaster, with his arms folded in prayer. According to reports, the mummy was last seen in 1927 when it was removed from its original tomb during an excavation on Mount Wutai in China’s Shanxi province. It disappeared into private collections after that, but now archaeologists have confirmed that it’s authentic thanks to DNA testing conducted on some hair samples recovered from that time period.

In addition to being able to confirm its authenticity, researchers have also learned more about what life was like for monks during that time period thanks to studies done on the mummy’s teeth: They reveal he subsisted primarily on cornmeal porridge or rice gruel.

According to The Times of India, the monk’s body was found curled up inside a rock-solid cocoon made of clay and plaster, which is why the skeleton itself was preserved for seven centuries.

The monk wore what was possibly his most prized possession on his feet — special shoes believed to be worth a fortune at the time.

The monk wore what was possibly his most prized possession on his feet — special shoes believed to be worth a fortune at the time.

The mummy was discovered by archaeologists who were excavating a Buddhist temple near Dunhuang in northwest China’s Gansu Province, who also found an ancient scroll detailing how monks could achieve enlightenment through meditation and physical exercise.

Once the shoes were uncovered, experts couldn’t help but joke about how he didn’t want to give up wearing them even after death.

The shoes were uncovered on the mummy’s feet. They were made of leather and silk, and despite the fact that they had been buried for 700 years in China, experts say they appeared to be in excellent condition.

The mummy was found inside a recently unearthed coffin that is believed to have been used for burial during the Qing Dynasty (1644 – 1912). Experts believe he was a wealthy man who could afford such fine footwear during his lifetime.

This 700-year-old mummy shows that there are always surprises in life.

He’s wearing sneakers.

That’s right, the 700-year-old mummy is wearing sneakers. And not just any old pair of Nikes or Asics, but a pair of 700-year-old Chinese Buddhist monk shoes that are worth $100,000.

The mummy was discovered in Xining City, China during an excavation project in 2007 by archaeologists from Northwest University. According to reports from Xinhua News Agency and China Daily News, this is actually the first-ever recorded case of a person being buried with their favorite pair of shoes intact in this region — which suggests that some things never change throughout time periods! It also means that I can wear my dirty white Vans to work every day without fear of losing them when I die!

Conclusion

It’s always interesting to learn more about our own origins and the history of human civilization, and here’s one more lesson from the past. The Jilin Baishya Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture is carefully considering what to do with the mummy, but if it does indeed prove to be 700-years-old, it could be a treasure trove for archaeologists in the region trying to piece together how ancient mummies were made.

And that is a wrap for our mummy of the month feature. We hope you enjoyed it!
