The Altai Princess Welcomes Tourists

The National Museum of the Altai Republic has started a large-scale reconstruction, after which tourists will see the Altai Princess. She will sit on a horse like a real ancient ruler.

      The mummy of an ancient woman was found in 1993 during the expedition of Natalya Polosmak, an archeologist from Novosibirsk. It was discovered in the Scythian burial mound, Ukok Plateau. The age of the so-called Siberian Ice Maiden is more than two and a half thousand years. Indigenous people of the Altai Republic decided that she was their ancestor, and therefore called her the Altai Princess.

      The appearance of the woman was restored in 2010 by scientists. The specialists of the Gerasimov's laboratory in Moscow made a complete reconstruction of the face using the bones of the skull, and created a sculpture that is now kept in the museum of the Novosibirsk Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography.
