Apparently people don't like looking at preserved corpses. So, don't click on these links.

I've been looking at more photos of the mummy from Osan, Korea, that is said to be from the 16th century.

English summary: http://english.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2010/05/14/2010051401110.html

Here are photos (navigate with the arrows) of various stages of unpacking her coffin. I'm now very interested in the back of her head, and if the first image the page loads on (http://photo.donga.com/view.php?idxno=201005130005) is a small veil (garima?) in the upper right hand side of the photo.

And she had a teeeny tiny pouch! http://media.paran.com/news/view.kth?dirnews=1476100&year=2010&rtlog=MP&p_eye=medi^con^b01^medi^click

Edit: and she is wearing a sock! http://blog.naver.com/PostView.nhn?blogId=beryu1&logNo=110086185721&viewDate=¤tPage=1&listtype=0

You're right! It is a very small pouch. Do they have any idea what it held?

Is that a sock, or something like a quilted/padded boot? It looks very large for a sock.

Fascinating!
