But these fascinating (and sometimes creepy) relics are also found in many other unusual parts of the world from the deserts of China to the ice of Greenland, from the bogs of Northern Europe to the high mountains of South America. Recent breakthroughs in research are helping these visitors from the far past give us tantalizing clues to life in ancient times.
