Genghis khan

Russian archeologists from the Far East worked eastwards from lake Baikal and unearthed human remains, which are believed to belong to khan Esunke, Genghis Khan’s nephew.

      
The team of archeologists comes from Far East Federal University and from Far Eastern branch of Russian academy of sciences. The remains were found in an estate, located near a khan’s residence. 

      New findings confirm a hypothesis that after Mongols conquered Primorsky territory and Northeast China, indigenous population left these territories in 10-13 centuries AD.

      Scientists plan to conduct genetic tests of their findings in Russian and foreign laboratories.
