A mummy that was found in Mongolia has gone viral because it seems to be wearing Adidas boots. People have tweeted that the mummy shows that time travel exists. The mummy was found in the Altai Mountains in a remote part of Mongolia. It is around 1,500 years old. The mummy’s boots look like a pair of snowboarding boots made by the sports company Adidas. The boots have the same three stripes that Adidas is famous for putting on its footwear. A picture of the boots has gone viral. People are tweeting that the mummy is a modern human who travelled back in time.

The mummy's grave was found in 2010 by local farmers. Last October, archaeologists started digging. They thought the site had many important things. The archaeologists found horse's saddles, clay vases, wooden bowls, and metal kettles. The site was the first complete Turkic burial ground found in Central Asia. Turkic people started living in a region between Central Asia and Siberia around 2,600 years ago. They had their own language and alphabet. The colour blue was very important in their culture. Some historians say the word 'turquoise' comes from the word 'Turkish'.
