Travelling Mummies

In February 2011, Chinese authorities nixed a planned U.S. tour for a 4,000-year-old mummy dubbed the "Beauty of Xiaohe." No reason was given, but observers speculated that it had to do with the mummy's Caucasian features and continuing debate over who first settled China's western Xinjiang region, a hotbed of separatist sentiment.
