Recent excavations in the Tarim Basin in Xinjiang province have uncovered more than 100 naturally mummified corpses of people who lived there between
4,000 and 2,400 years ago, indicating that the Aryan race of red and blonde hair with blue eyes lived in this area at one time. The bodies were amazingly
well preserved by the arid climate, and according to the New York Times "...archaeologists could hardly believe what they saw."

The mummies had long noses and skulls, blond or red hair, thin lips, deepset eyes, and other unmistakably Aryan features. Dr. Victor H. Mair of the
University of Pennsylvania said, "Because the Tarim Basin Caucasoid corpses are almost certainly representatives of the Indo-European family, and
because they date from a time period early enough to have a bearing on the expansion of the Indo-European people from their homeland, it is thought that
they will play a crucial role in determining just where that might have been."  
( Personally I believe that the opposite is true. I believe that  the European Man
came out of  or was part of this pre-existing culture that has been found around the world...including China. ..Sutherland)

One such mummy is of a teenage girl with blond hair and blue eyes. Her remains was found  in a cave and has become quite a tourist attraction in Beijing.
She has been given the name,  "The Lady of Tarim" and  is on display at the museum. It is believed that she was someone of importance who lived over
3,000 years ago. She was found buried in  fine embroidered garments of wool and leather, along with beautiful jewelry, jars and ornaments of gold, silver,
jade and onyx. Her remains are in such a remarkable state of preservation that she looks as if she was sleeping.
