Barber, Elizabeth Wayland: THE MUMMIES OF URUMCHI. London, 1999. 240 pp. 29 full-colour plates, numerous text figures, tables, maps. Bibliography, index. 24x16 cm. Cloth.
A much-awaited publication devoted to the highly-publicized discovery of early Caucasian mummies in China's north-west, throwing doubts on China's claims to uniquely separate cultural origins and development, and asking the question, 'Did Europeans migrate to China 4,000 years ago?' This book will also be of interest to textile collectors, and is written by a noted expert, the author of 'Prehistoric Textiles' and 'Women's Work: The First 20,000 Years.' Out-of-print.
