I wonder if Herbert West could re-animate her?

Fascinating. What intrigues me more are the adornments a person was buried with- besides the cap, what was she wrapped in? Were there fasteners, religious objects,shoes, etc.These finding often tell more about a culture then the physical body.

This is so well preserved of history's past. I agree with Allan unless all the religious artifacts are wrapped in her quilt. She's looks like she was a servant the was she is dressed. Only time will tell.
