The Reading / Listening - Level 0

A photo of a mummy has gone viral because it seems to have Adidas boots. People say it shows that time travel is real. The mummy was found in Mongolia. It is 1,500 years old. The boots look like a pair made by Adidas. People say the mummy is a modern human who travelled back in time.



Farmers found the grave in 2010. Archaeologists started digging. They found important things like saddles, vases, bowls, and kettles. The grave is from the Turkic people. They have been in Central Asia for 2,600 years. The colour blue was important to them. The word 'turquoise' may come from the word 'Turkish'.
