Archaeologists in France have unearthed the extraordinarily well-preserved corpse of a 17th-century noblewoman — still dressed in her dress, bonnet and shoes. A team from the French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research discovered the body when they pried open her lead coffin during a rescue excavation on the construction site of a new conference center in Rennes in northwestern France.
“When we opened the coffin (we) saw a body, a lot of volume of fabric, the shoes,” said anthropologist Rozenn Colleter, who is part of the team. “We didn’t know how well-preserved she was until we scanned her.”
Colleter describes her as a “natural mummy — particularly well preserved.”
Inscriptions allowed the archaeologists to identify the nearly intact body as belonging to Louise de Quengo, Lady of Brefeillac, who died in 1656. Louise was buried in a cape, serge wool dress and plain shirt and leather mules with cork soles. Her face was covered with a shroud, two bonnets and a hood.
