Blond Scythian Mummy Found in Mongolia

Archaeologists have unearthed a well-preserved, 2,500-year-old frozen mummy from the snowcapped mountains of Mongolia. The mummy has blond hair, tattoos and a felt hat. He was wearing a beaver-skin coat with sable trim and sheep's wool lining. His upper body revealed tattoos.

In the tomb with the mummy were two horses with elaborately decorated saddles and bridles, and there were weapons.
