The tomb of Genghis Khan has been discovered?!!

    Perhaps the most exciting archaeological discovery in our lifetimes, if in fact true. I've not seen any other links picking this up though, and the ID is circumstantial, but I would think they could get some DNA to help them out.

    Still, it indeed might have been hidden under a river that moved (rivers do that) allowing this construction to go forward, and there was a lot of stuff buried in it, wealth, slaves, concubines...

    In theory, 1 in 200 people alive today are in some way descended from him.

    How do they know it was Genghis Khan?

    Clickbait article. Not one reference to an actual scientist. No scientific evidence apart from guesswork which would make you think that the whole story has been fabricated.

    From the people who brought you the Nazi gold train?
