German Tourist Profits From World's Oldest Ice Mummy

A German vacationer who discovered a 5,000-year-old ice mummy received a €175,000 ($213,000) reward for her sensational find after a long legal battle, her lawyer said Tuesday.

Yellow Link Road

Once again, more cultural and historical gold being mined from receding ice and snow. One can only imagine how much money this woman could have fetched trying to sell this item to a private collector rather than going to the local authorities seeking a reward.

I can see the museum now; “A 5000 year old mummy, hmmm, doesn’t look well cared for, the wrappings are starting to yellow, the skin looks weathered and wrinkly, we can only give you about $213,000, if you could have found a newer one in better condition, we could have given you more.”


On the serious side, at least she turned it over to the right people instead of it being lost in a private collection for years upon years.
