Stygian mummy found

Paging Robert E. Howard*. Mr. Howard to the courtesy phone please.

Berlin – Archaeologists have unearthed a well-preserved, 2 500-year-old mummy frozen in the snow-capped mountains of Mongolia complete with blond hair, tattoos and a felt hat.

The president of the German Archaeological Institute, Hermann Parzinger, hailed the “fabulous find” at a press conference to present the 28-member team’s discovery in Berlin.

The Scythian warrior was found in June at a height of 2 600m in the Altay Mountains in an intact burial mound or kurgan.

Parzinger said the tomb was practically untouched when the team discovered it.

*Maybe Howard’s Hyborian Age really existed.
