Three female mummies of Subeshi were found wearing tall, pointed black hats of felted wool that resemble the stereotypical headgear of traditional witches, and dated to between the 4th and 2nd centuries BC They were located in a high gorge just to the east of the city of Turfan.
It has been suggested that one of the three, wearing a heavy glove, may indicate that she hunted with a raptor.
