I hope it's the real deal, too. That would be great. But you know, I have to laugh because whenever someone mentions Ghengis Khan, I think of of how he was portrayed in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure!

They have found Ghengis Khan's Mausoleum ? Just be careful not to open any silver coffins that might be found there, just ask Lamont Cranston what sort of problems THAT can cause !;)

I know I am replying to a very old post, but I also think of the way he was portrayed in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

You aren't alone, the image I have of G.K. was shaped that way as well. ;)

Sigh. I was hoping that somebody would've added new information to this post. There's always a chance I've missed something.

In the meantime, Genghis Khan's tomb remains undiscovered. Check out The Valley of the Khans Project site for continued updates.

Dr. Albert Yu-Min Lin has an interesting talk on the nascent idea of "crowd-sourcing" an archeological site/dig/expedition.

Six years later and the Great Khan's tomb still remains undiscovered. One intrepid explorer/adventurer, Alan Nichols, thinks the tomb now lies in what is historical Mongolia.

And if it’s not found by someone who wants to take it to the next step – which is to find the right institutions and way to protect those remains – it’ll be another Disneyland.

The dunes are steep and the sand gives way under the camels’ feet, causing them to slide and stumble; the fact that they’re tied together on a short rope doesn’t help.
