Published on July 30th, 2009 | by Admin


Researchers armed with the latest technology are searching for the tomb of Genghis Khan, founder of the Mongol empire and one of the world’s greatest and most ruthless emperors.

According to legend, Khan died in 1227 near the Liupan mountains of China and is thought to be buried in the northeastern region of what is currently Mongolia.

Now a group of researchers led by University of California San Diego’s Center of Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture and Archaeology, with funding from National Geographic, have embarked on a quest to find this ancient grave. Their secret weapon: an array of technological gizmos ranging from unmanned aerial vehicles to sophisticated satellites and 3-D displays.
