Preliminary Results of the National Museum of Mongolian “Airagiin Gozgor” Project Research in argalant sum, Orkhon province.

Speaker: Odbaatar Tserendorj
5:30 PM, Tuesday - March 22th, 2016, American Corner, Ulaanbaatar public library

In addition to historical documents, archaeological excavations are one of the most important sources for information on the ancient history of Mongolia. Results of excavations at the site of Airagiin Gozgor in Jargalant sum, Orkhon province will shed new light on Mongolian ancestors and clarify our understanding of Mongolia. This project excavated 9 tombs over 2 years that display evidence of unique ritual practices. These tombs are quite different than other tombs excavated in the territory of Mongolia. Preliminary results suggest that tombs date back to the end of Xiongnu Empire to subsequent nomads. 

Co-Sponsored by the American Cultural and Information Center, Ulaanbaatar
