CHINA— Archeologists found a mummified couple that was buried 500 years ago on Tuesday.

The married couple was buried during the Ming Dynasty.

The woman was wrapped in heavy cotton clothing and blankets. Though the clothing was dirty, the material looked intact. The female mummy looked almost life-like.

The couple was one of several preserved bodies recently found. One of the most famous discovery was found in the 1970's, when a Duchess, whom was buried 2,000 years ago, was found by construction workers. The mummy was so well-preserved, the workers thought they had found a murder victim.
