    In the late 1980's, perfectly preserved 3000-year-old mummies began appearing in a remote Chinese desert. They had long reddish-blond hair, European features and didn't appear to be the ancestors of modern-day Chinese people. Archaeologists now think they may have been the citizens of an ancient civilization that existed at the crossroads between China and Europe.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I've read about them before, don't remember where though. There was also something I read about a group of white people that Marco Polo may have encountered on his trip to China, not sure if the two are connected or if they were stories that he heard during his travels or what.

    We're going to find that ancient peoples weren't as backwards as most might think. There are several accounts of pre-Columbian art depicting Oriental looking people or early European pottery being found in the Caribbean(or something like that).

    considering that many of the old maps the depict Antarctica accurately are based on OLDER maps, I have no doubt that many of ancient civilizations traveled all over. Hell they have found Egyptian artifacts as far away as Australia and Roman artifacts in both North and South America
