A Turkic monument was discovered in eastern Mongolia, consisting of a stone sarcophagus at the center surrounded by 14 stone pillars each bearing inscriptions called tamga. The ruins were dated to the 8th century during the Second Turkic Khaganate, an alliance of nomadic clans under a Khagan located in modern Mongolia. The person buried at the monument was a Yabgu, a rank directly under the Khagan and then later a Tölis-Shad, one of the highest ranking officers in Mongolia at the time. It’s also important to note that the location of this monument was unknown to historians who studied the state, possibly opening up a new area to exploration. The discovery was made by a joint effort between the Mongolian Academy of Sciences and Osaka University, led by Professor Takashi Osawa.
