Ancient Tureg Era monument to be researched

By M.ZOLJARGAL

A team of researchers at the Institute of Archaeology of Mongolian Academy of Sciences, led by Phd Ts.Bolorbat, found two ancient monuments which date back to the Tureg Era near Delgerkhaan Mountain in Tuvshinshiree soum of Sukhbaatar Province. The monuments have 2,832 letters, 646 words, and over 30 seal prints and floral prints according to the experts.

Researcher R.Munkhtulga and Professor T.Osova of Osaka University studied the words using paper-based casts and found that synonyms of “Noyon” (Lord), “Nutag” (Land) and “Ezen” (Owner) were repeatedly written.

Researchers believe that the seal prints on the monument were printed by aristocratic people who attended the funeral of the lord the monument was dedicated to.
