Most people think of Egypt when they talk about mummies, but many are surprised that what is seen as the best preserved mummy in the world came from China!

Han aristocrat named Lady Dai is known as the ‘Diva Mummy’, and 2000 years after her death is still leading scientists into new discoveries about ancient life and mummification processes. The scientists are looking at questions like how she lived, what she ate and how people back then died. This ‘most perfectly preserved mummy’ could hold the answers that we don’t know yet!
