ANCIENT HISTORY

THE TAKLA MAKAN

Celtic Mummies in the desert, expert riders, woollen Tartans, 3,800 years ago

*"The Chinese cavalry was not powerful enough to chase them.

But they did have superb engineers. The Great Wall of China was linked up in the 3rd Century B.C. from sections that had been built earlier. It was not yet the Wall we see today, but it was large enough to impress the nomads."

**" Strikingly similar to Celtic tartans from Northwest Europe, the patterns in the weave are like ancient DNA, waiting to be decoded. Are they evidence that the mummy people share common origins with the people of western Europe ? Scientific reconstruction of the heads of the mummies produces a face that strongly resembles ancient Celts and Saxons. "

*** "The puzzle is coming together. Tartan textiles, European faces, shared ritual practices, and now a close affiliation with European languages. They belong to a people related to those who lived in eastern Europe in a region around the Urals and the Black Sea. Most of their common ancestors migrated west. The mummy people went east, through the Russian Steppes, to the Takla Makan."
