Mysterious Giant Skeletons Found in High Alтιтude Greece Continues to Baffle Researchers

Researchers have determined that skeletons found at Roopkund Lake in India belonged to Greeks, as stated in the astounding results of their investigation into these mysterious human remains.

The skeletons, discovered at Roopkund Lake, which sits at an alтιтude of approximately 5,000 meters, or 16,404 feet, were analyzed using DNA to finally determine the ethnic origin of the people they may have belonged to.

In a stunning turn, according to these results, the first group of skeletons appear to have belonged to people originating from the Eastern Mediterranean.

The researchers found that the DNA of the skeletons is similar to the genetic makeup of Greek people who currently live on Crete and on the mainland of Greece.

Greek, Pakistani, and Indian skeletons found at Roopkund Lake

The bones are believed to belong to people who lived between 1600 and 1900 AD, with the most plausible scenario being that of people who lived at some time around the 1800s.

The second group of bones which was found in the same area are far older, and date all the way back to the year 800 AD.

The DNA of the second group of skeletons matches that of people from South Asia, including modern Indians and Pakistanis.

A local legend, which persisted long before the skeletons were found, claims that a group of people on a pilgrimage to a holy site were killed at the lake during a heavy hailstorm in the ninth century.

The dating of the skeletons to 800 AD could lend credence to the once-mythic story.

There is no local legend about a group of Greeks visiting the area in the 19th century that could help solve the mystery, however.

Scientists unsure why Greeks visited the lake

The scientists, who recently published their unusual findings in the magazine Nature, have not managed to determine the reasons why a group of people came from modern-day Greece to visit an area located at such a high alтιтude.

They have also not been able to come up with a hypothesis to explain the reasons why they all died in such close proximity to each other, or why their bodies at least were placed so near each other.

Thirteen out of the total fourteen skeletons in the first group are believed to have belonged to Greeks who were alive at about the same time.

The analyses also revealed that the group of Greeks had all been healthy before they all mysteriously died, under circumstances which may never become known.

Roopkund Lake, located in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, is a favorite destination for those who visit northern India. It is also known as the ”Mystery Lake” or the ”Lake of Skeletons” because of the number of skeletons that have been found in the region.

“Centuries-Long Search Ends as Archaeologists Unearth Genghis Khan’s Long-Lost Tomb in Mongolia”

Construction workers employed in road building near the Onon River in the Khentii province of Mongolia, have discovered a mᴀss grave containing the remains of many dozens of human corpses lying upon a large rudimentary stone structure.

Forensic experts and archaeologists were called on the site, which was revealed to be a Mongolian royal tomb from the 13th century that the scientists believe to be Genghis Khan’s.

The team of scientists affiliated with the University of Beijing has concluded that the numerous skeletons ʙuʀιᴇᴅ on top of the structure were most likely the slaves who built it and who were then мᴀssᴀcʀᴇᴅ to keep the secret of the location.

The ʀᴇмᴀιɴs of twelve horses were also found on the site, certainly sᴀcʀιғιcᴇᴅ to accompany the Great Khan in ᴅᴇᴀтн.

A total of 68 skeletons were found ʙuʀιᴇᴅ together, almost directly over the top of a rather crude stone structure

The content of the tomb was scattered and badly deteriorated, presumably due to the fact that the site was located beneath the river bed for hundreds of years until the course of the Onon river changed in the 18th century. The ʀᴇмᴀιɴs of a tall male and sixteen female skeletons were identified among hundreds of gold and silver artifacts and thousands of coins.

The women are presumed to have been wives and concubines of the leader, who were κιʟʟᴇᴅ to accompany the warlord in the afterlife.

The amount of treasure and the number of sᴀcʀιғιcᴇᴅ animals and people, have immediately led the archaeologists to consider that the site was certainly the ʙuʀιᴇᴅ site of a really powerful Mongol warlord.

After realizing an extensive set of tests and analysis, they were able to confirm that the ʙoᴅʏ belonged to a man aged between 60 and 75, who ᴅιᴇᴅ between 1215 and 1235 AD.

Both the age, the date, the location, and the opulence of the site seem to confirm that the tomb does indeed belong to Genghis Khan.

The simple rock dome discovered by the archaeologists, was presumably ʙuʀιᴇᴅ beneath the Onon river for centuries. The incontestable historical importance of Genghis Khan makes this new discovery one of the most important in the history of archaeology.

Born Temüjin (which means “of iron”), he was the founder and ԍʀᴇᴀтκнᴀɴ (emperor) of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his demise. He is known for uniting the tribes of Mongolia and merging them into one before launching a series of military campaigns in cнιɴᴀ, Central Asia, the Middle East and even Eastern Europe.

He conquered more than 31 million square kilometers of land during his lifetime. His legacy has taken many forms besides his conquest and can still be found today, making him one of the most influential men in the history of mankind.

He connected the East and the West through the creation of the Silk Route, a trade route that would become and remain for centuries, the main network of trade and cultural transmission in Eurasia, opening long-distance, political and economic interactions between the civilizations.

Genghis Khan also has an incredible number of descendants, as some genetic studies have shown that he could be the direct ancestor of 1 human out every 200 who are alive today. In Mongolia alone as many as 200,000 of the country’s 2 million people could be Genghis Khan descendants.
