800-year-old vases containing frozen clotted cream and yellow butter found from glacial www.montsame.mn

Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The ‘Umard Mongol’ joint research team of the National Museum of Mongolia, the University of Pittsburgh of the U.S, and the American Center for Mongolian Studies has come across a rare finding of three vases full of clotted cream and one vase with yellow butter that were frozen in glacial about 700-800 years ago.

The findings of this summer’s excavation is considered to possibly be a new discovery for the international archeology scene alongside being a discovery related to nobles of the Mongolian Empire. During the research team’s work on the protection of looted tombs relating to the Mongolian Empire and collecting artifacts that they found in 2018 and 2019 at the site named Khorig in Ulaan-Uul soum of Khuvsgul aimag, they came across a large amount of artifacts that are highly significant in research, which included the aforementioned vases with frozen clotted cream and yellow butter that were even more of a rare case.

Highly significant artifacts relating to the history of the Mongolian Empire such as items made of gold, silver, iron, silk, bones, hide and cork as well as human and livestock bones have also been found. Specifically, gold relics with depictions of a golden sun, silver moon and deity, earrings and a golden accessory of a belt were unveiled with the several hundred artifacts that included various items such as a leather sack filled with trinkets in silk wrappings, a part of a silk deel with a swastika pattern, dragons and other mythical creatures with golden thread, a part of a leather boot, bow and arrowhead, arrowcase, porcelain and clay vases, bone brush and equestrian equipment.

The research team is being led by the Head of the Research Center at the National Museum, Dr. J.Bayarsaikhan and Dr. Julia Clark. These cultural findings are expected to serve as proof of the triumphant history of the Mongolian Empire and have an important role in developing patriotic views and respect for national heritage for the future generations of Mongolia.
