The mummy is an original inhabitant known as Rus also these people with the red hair inhabited the planet and were called the Adamic race from which word we get ADAM , Eve came from evolution Tree of knowledge refered to our DNA and today we have a story in our bible nobody understands what it means except to think this story means we are all sinners who need religions to save us. What rubbish as the only one who can save you is yourself.

Intriguing. I hope the scientists will look at folklore and stories - these bodies were dated to 1000 years ago

'The archaeologists also found bowls originating in Persia, some 3,700 miles to the southwest, dating from the 10th or 11th centuries.
The finding suggests that around one millennium ago Siberia was not a remote and inhospitable site but an important trading crossroad.'

It's just AMAZING how early and how far-ranging trading networks were established. Our ancestors weren't as home-bound as we used to think! Of course they discovered the Americas... but kept it quiet. Native Americans had vast trading networks too. And the Polynesians... Buddhist ideas made it, apparently, into the Mediterranean area and perhaps our Bible... These guys really got around! On foot and carrying stuff, with pack animals and with ships... Ocean currents and rivers, and following trails originally made by animals...
Undergoing a lot of physical hardship didn't stop them! Endless, endless curiosity of Humans...
