At Home in Her Tomb: Lady Dai and the Ancient Chinese Treasures of Mawangdui
Christine Liu-Perkins
This middle-grade book unearths the mysteries of the Mawangdui tombs. Lady Dai's mummy was so remarkably preserved that scientists were able to perform an autopsy–more than two thousand years after Lady Dai's death. The tomb also protected hundreds of artifacts from the Han Dynasty. Miniature servants, mysterious silk paintings, and scrolls holding long-lost secrets gave invaluable clues to daily life in ancient China.
