For centuries historians and treasure seekers have searched for the burial site of history's most famous conqueror. New findings offer compelling evidence that it's been found.

Is it on the island of Thasos along with the tomb of Alexander and the Ark?

"Come to sunny Thasos: we'll accept your dead conquerors and any articles contravening health and safety laws."

Gee, I suggested the very thing two years ago.

Then, when they buried Genghis, they either redirected a river to cover the site, or set horses to trample the ground so no trace would be seen, and killed all the people who buried him, and then killed those killers.

After the burial, 500 nomadic Mongol families were charged with keeping the exact location a secret. Centered around the Khentii Province, the Dahlut's have kept to this vow today via the Khan Khentii Strictly Protected Area. Herding and tourism are tightly regulated, and all mining and hunting is prohibited.

In 1932 Boris Karloff appeared in the film "The Mask of Fu Manchu", where the good doctor also searches for the Tomb of Ghengis Khan.

It's too bad that Boris isn't around now.

What a villain he would make for Indiana Jones to contend with.



Is that a Crystal Skull?

And searching for it again in the great serial Drums of Fu Manchu (1940)!
