1,500-Year-Old Mummy Appears To Be Wearing Adidas Trainers

Time for conspiracy theorists to have a field day:

That’s right, folks, a mummy wearing Adidas!

You don’t have to be a writer to come up with a half-baked plot for this one. Was someone sent back in time and can’t get back? Is this a call for help? Was sending them back an accident in the first place…or nefariously planned?! The mystery remains locked…in the past! /sosorryforthegodawfulteaserline

Seriously though, all this is proof of is that these guys were really good craftsmen.

The mummified remains were found 2,803 meters (9,196 feet) up in Mongolia’s Altai Mountains. The mummy, thought to be a native Turkic female, is estimated to be over 1,500 years old. Its discovery was prompted after local herdsmen stumbled across the grave and alerted the Khovd Museum.

Score one for history, here’s a nice little time-locked piece of history. They found other artifacts in the tomb as well, offering insight into the people of that time. You can see and read more here.

Well readers, can you come up with some crazy/hilarious/hokey plot-lines for an Adidas-clad time-traveler? Share in the comments!
