It is cool. But I find it slightly annoying that they describe it as a mummy, when it is, in fact, a fossil. Yes, it was mummified before it was mineralised, but it doesn't now seem to contain organic matter.

A real mummy would be soft and could contain - duh duh duuuuh - DNA. And you might be able to tell skin colour. It just annoys me when you get a really exciting scientific discovery, and the press have to try to pretend it is even more than it is.

Yes . . . too true. I'll admit that DNA was my first thought when I read "mummy." Ah well. One of these days. :D
