The Ukok Princess

Thanks to Helen Steer for the tipoff to this story in the Siberian Times, which is not a newspaper I read very often, although maybe I should start.
It describes the homecoming of a mummy, with intricate and beautiful tattoos which have been reconstructed.
Late last year, a book that I wrote was published by Collins called 'The Ice Man'.
Otzi the Ice Man was found buried in Ice high in the Italian alps. He also had a range of tattoos on his body, and the book explains how they were made, amongst other things.
I think he and the Ukok Princess would have got on...
