Caption: Ice maiden mummy in a display cabinet at the Siberian branch of the Russian Institute for Archeology and Ethnography. Also known as the 'Altai Princess' or 'Ukok Princess', this woman's mummified body was found frozen in her burial mound (kurgan) in 1993, on the Ukok Plateau, high in the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia. Thought to be 2500 years old, she was found buried with horses and many artefacts. She was from the Pazyryk people, a Scythian culture. The Scythians were a nomadic European people who inhabited a wide region of steppes extending from present-day Ukraine eastwards into Central Asia. Photographed in 2010.
