hild's Mummy in Birch Bark Cocoon Found in Yamal

Yamal researchers in Siberia have found a child's mummy wrapped in a birch bark cocoon. The find dates back to the 18th century.

      A boy of about 6-7 years old was hidden under buck skin and copper plates of green shade. They were fastened with special leather laces. A small axe was kept next to the boy's body. Experts think that the copper plates could have promoted natural mummifying of the body.

      The scientists plan to scan the boy's mummy. Only after that examination they will draw the final conclusion concerning the unusual find.
