The Man From Hami
Qizilchoqa cemetery near Wupu, China
Included among the Tarim Basin and Cherchen Caucasoid Mummies, The Man from Hami was found at the Qizilchoqa cemetery near Wupu, about 60 km to the west of Hami. Among his grave goods were several distinctive hatsincluding a beret style made with the first recorded case of nålebind-ing (a technique like crocheting) and a Phrygian-style cap made of thick brown felt with striking white ornamental stitching. Also from this site were discovered plaids employing the diagonal twill that was found at Celtic sites in Europe dating to around the same period, c. 1,000 BCE.
