She died over 2,000 years ago, but her body was so well preserved that scientists could do an autopsy on her and learn that she had eaten muskmelon just before she died. The artifacts in her tomb and those of her husband and son are a time capsule giving us a peek into the world of the Han dynasty in China. Illus. with photos and drawings.
