Ginger, London

Preserved Bodies Around the World, Excerpt
Ginger is one of the stars of the British Museum. The oldest and most famous fossilized human form, he lies in a foetal position in a sandy pit that has been reconstructed to look like the one in which he was preserved. He was named for the straggly remains of his ginger hair, but his skin is remarkably ginger too.
