Ming Dynasty Mummy found in China

Archaeologists have discovered a well-preserved, 700-year-old, body of a woman inside a stone coffin in China. The coffin was found on a building site in Taizhou, in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province. The coffin was one of the three discovered in a tomb two metres underground on a construction site in the city.

Researchers from the Taizhou Museum carefully opened the coffins. In two they found skeletons, Ming Dynasty clothes and funerary objects. However, in the third they found the well
preserved body of a woman.

The 5-foot-long corpse was tightly wrapped in cerecloth (heavy wax-treated linen cloth used for burying the dead), quilt and clothes.

The corpse has complete skin and clearly recognizable facial features, hair and even eyelashes

During their investigations members of the Taizhou museum team found a number of funerary objects, including a gem ring, a silver hairpin and more than 20 pieces of cotton clothing from the time of the Ming.

Learn how you can become a tree when you die!

There’s a biodegradable urn that contains a tree seed and absorbs the nutrients in
your ashes. Gerard Moline has created the Bios Urn. It’s a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose. Inside of it is a tree seed. Once the person’s remains are placed in the urn, it can be planted. If all goes as planned, the seed will germinate and begin to grow. You can even choose the type of tree you would like to have grow from your remains. So what sounds better, leaving behind a tree or a tombstone?

Fire glass

Fire glass produces more heat than real wood, and is also environmentally friendly. There is no smoke, it’s odorless and doesn’t produce ash. You are able to stay toasty warm without cutting down trees and the specially formulated glass crystals give off no toxic deposit.
