|Siberian archeologists have completed a successful expedition in the Southern Mongolia, where they performed excavations of the Noin-Ula kurgans, a burial place of the Hunnu (Xiongnu).
This is the name of the people that founded the world first ever empire of nomads – it was in the Central Asia in the beginning of the first millennium B.C. The Great Chinese Wall was built for defense from them.
In the course of the expedition the archeologists found artifacts both of Chinese origin and those referring to antique culture. Now they will be studied by scientists in laboratories. Mongol students helped Siberian archeologists to carry out diggings.
