The saddest things that have ever been discovered by archaeologists.


A female corpse was dug up in Heilongjiang, China with black objects on her feet in 1999. Experts have revealed her tragic experience – she was buried alive.


For more than 200 years, the skin, muscles and joints of a woman’s body have not been damaged. This female body was in the coffin, very distorted posture, round eyes, dark circles and very open mouth. Even if she has become a mummy, it is not difficult to notice that her expression is very painful.

According to The Mummy’s face and bones, the archaeological team said it was a young woman about 25 years old.

According to Chinese tradition, a person dies before burial, he or she will be cleaned, and his or her limbs will also be straightened.

But her limbs lay crouching in the coffin. Then there is only one reason that leads to this situation: when she is buried she is not dead.


After giving birth, the placenta is not discharged and stored in the body should cause the types of retained placenta.

When it’s left untreated, a retained placenta causes sudden blood loss and life-threatening bleeding.

The family did not know her situation. In addition, in those days, it was not uncommon for women to die from childbirth, the family assumed she had died. So her family began to rush to the funeral and buried.

After the burial, she slowly wakes up, she finds herself lying in a squid-like dark coffin.

The coffin was so short that she could not sit up, and she could not open the coffin door.


So she started screaming for help, during her fierce struggle fracturing and scratching her toes and left fingers, the placenta that was inside the uterus also fell out.

She struggled, screaming desperately in the coffin, but the dense and dense coffin blocked the sound inside, no one could hear it.

There is a cloth ring hanging inside the coffin. All of this cloth was ripped apart when she was raking the coffin. She was exhausted by shouting desperately, and in the end, she died in pain and suffocation.
