Cocooned in copper, best fur, fabric and birch bark, an adult and tiny baby from the 8th century



Researchers from the Centre for Arctic Studies and Seoul National University are working on the finds. 

Siberian scientists will do tomography tests  to ascertain  the level of body preservation.

This will also highlight any burial artifacts hidden inside the cocoons. 

The archaeological complex was discovered in 1997 during the work of  Russian-American expedition for the "Living Yamal" project.
