Incredibly Well Preserved 700 Year Old Mummy Found In China

I was checking out weird news and then I came across this news article about an incredibly preserved 700 year old mummified woman in Taizhou, China. Not only the mummy (most likely a member of the ancient Chinese nobility) is completely dressed from head to feet, it seemed like she died recently. It was discovered buried 2 meters under a road during a construction.

China has one of the oldest civilizations in the world. They were like the Egyptians of Asia. I wonder what is the secret behind the amazing preservation process of this mummy?
