7. Celts in Ancient China?
Interesting article describes the finding of Celtic-type mummies etc in what is now northwest China.
Two preliminary notes are in order:
a. The article appears to date the finds to ca. 1300 BCE:
Other evidence however (tree trunk lines , tapestry patterns etc)
place the dating at ca 500 BCE, see
"The Mummies of Urumch" by Elizabeth Wayland Barber, 1999.
In fact , the dates could quite easily be brought down further.
b. The presence of such mummies and similar findings and an explanation
that is archaeologically acceptable is given in "The Tribes", 1993
some time before additional recent findings of the same nature were sensationalized.
