Mummy of a Mongolian woman from the 13th or 14th century, along with her grave goods.  The mummy is wearing leather boots. She has a beautiful necklace, earrings and a hair comb, among other things. 

Mongolian women held a high status in their society under Genghis Khan.  They were actively involved in decision-making for the community, and the Great Khan enacted specific laws to protect them from kidnapping and other abuses.
