France and Mongolia display rare archaeological exhibition | The UB Post
Within the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Mongolia and France, the sides are jointly displaying the exhibition “Mongolia-France Archaeological Discoveries in Cooperation of 20 years” at the Mongolian National Museum.
The archaeological collaboration between Mongolia and France began in 1994 and has since carried out a wide range of exploration, excavations, and research in 17 different locations, covering all historical stages of Mongolia so far. France has spent over 200,000 EUR on recovering over 200 archaeological findings between 1996 and 2004.
The exhibition is open from June 18 to July 30, and displays around 50 assortments of 300 archaeological findings discovered in joint projects of the last two decades. Some 60 percent of the findings on display have never been showed to the public before.
According to French archaeologist and researcher Pierre Giscard, who was present at the press conference, French researchers believe they have discovered the tomb of Chinggis Khaan using modern technology. Respecting the request of the people of Mongolia, they have no intention or interest in revealing the location. If Mongolian institutions make the decision to dig, the people who carry out the dig will only be Mongolians, Giscard told to www.chuhal.mn.
Aaaah, la tombe de Gengis Khan ! Ce vieux #serpent_de_mer !

Remains of Genghis Khan palace unearthed - Technology & science - Science | NBC News
Archaeologists have unearthed the site of Genghis Khan’s palace and believe the long-sought grave of the 13th century Mongolian warrior is somewhere nearby, the head of the excavation team said Wednesday.
A Japanese and Mongolian research team found the complex on a grassy steppe 150 miles east of the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator, said Shinpei Kato, professor emeritus at Tokyo’s Kokugakuin University.

The Hidden Grave of History’s Greatest Warrior
Germans, Japanese, Americans, Russians, and Brits all have led expeditions in search of his grave, spending millions of dollars. All have failed. The location of the tomb has been one of archeology’s most enduring mysteries.
A multidisciplinary research project uniting scientists in America with Mongolian scholars and archeologists has the first compelling evidence of the location of Khan’s burial site and the necropolis of the Mongol imperial family on a mountain range in a remote area in northwestern Mongolia.
Among the discoveries by the team are the foundations of what appears to be a large structure from the 13th or 14th century, in an area that has historically been associated with this grave. Scientists have also found a wide range of artifacts that include arrowheads, porcelain, and a variety of building material.
“Everything lines up in a very compelling way,” says Albert Lin, National Geographic explorer and principal investigator of the project, in an exclusive interview with Newsweek.

Mongolia : Archaeologists Unearth Tomb of Genghis Khan World News Daily Report
Öndörkhaan| Construction workers employed in road building near the Onon River in the Khentii province of Mongolia, have discovered a mass grave containing the remains of many dozens of human corpses lying upon a large rudimentary stone structure. Forensic experts and archaeologists were called on the site, which was revealed to be a Mongolian royal tomb from the 13th century that the scientists believe to be Genghis Khan’s.
The team of scientists affiliated with the University of Beijing, has concluded that the numerous skeletons buried on top of the structure were most likely the slaves who built it and who were then massacred to keep the secret of the location. The remains of twelve horses were also found on the site, certainly sacrificed to accompany the Great Khan in death.

Has Genghis Khan’s tomb be spotted from SPACE ? | Daily Mail Online
But now scientists, aided by a team of amateur archaeologists, believe they are close to finding the final resting place of the first Mongolian emperor.
By scouring more than 84,000 satellite images of the area where he suspected of being buried, more than 10,000 volunteers identified sites that looked like they might be of archaeological significance.
The crowdsourcing project allowed the researchers to survey an area of 6,000 sq km (2,316 square miles), an area twice the size of Yosemite National Park.
In a paper published in the journal Public Library of Science One, they claim to have identified 55 potential archaeological sites that could be home to the remains of Genghis Khan.
The team were then able to visit some of the sites in Northern Mongolia to carry out ground surveys and use drone aircraft to take pictures from above.
Dr Albert Yu-Min Lin, the researcher who led the project at the Calfiornia Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology at the University of California, in San Diego, and a self-confessed Genghis Khan obsessive, said the work has brought them closer to finally answering the question of where Genghis Khan is buried.
