They must have used that most reliable method of “scientific dating” called Carbon Dating.

The photos are obviously not of boots any younger than the rest of mummy. With the injuries observed, she may well have been violently killed. As you say, sacrifice or murder seem most likely.

adidas should definitely sue for patent infringement. Don’t let them get away, even after 1000 years.

I think the more interesting feature is the double stitching, about 10 or 12 stitches per inch. Looks like machine work.

The Altai region is so cold and dry it preserves bodies and textiles really well. Those boots look like they would be fashionable today.

It would really suck dying that way. Has to be a story there.

You have to be careful what neighborhood you walk through wearing Adidas or Nikes.
