A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.
NO FUCKING WAY.
YO HOLD ON.
IT GETS BETTER.
This mummy, found in the Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.
She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance.
…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.
And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?
The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.
-It’s a key.
-No. Much more better. It is a drawing of a key.
I’m surprised to see you here, Rory, given what happened. You were left on the mountainside. Yeah, I can’t believe I’m here. Things weren’t looking too good last time I saw myself. (x)

you have slept for 8 hours
Can we all take a moment to appreciate Beth’s look in this scene?
Look. At. This.
This is the look of a woman promising to get even, in some way or another. She’s about to get the snot slapped out of her and I think she knows it. She’s bracing for it and she just looks angry. But besides that, these people whoever the hell they are, took her from the only surviving (as far as she knows) member of her prison family. You can bet your ass that any person, no matter how cool tempered they are, is gunna be just a tiny bit upset over this. I could go on and on about theories regarding who these people are, but one thing that was made very clear today is that Beth is not staying with them willingly. EK’s already said that Beth is going to be a different character in regards to strength and experiences when s5 starts. Beth’s story arc is going to positively blow our minds, more than we’re expecting y’all.
WHATEVER SHALL I DO
this is the scene of the crime
