AKIPRESS.COM - A team of South Korean archaeologists has found the mummy of a man wearing Chinese clothes in an unearthed tomb believed to date back about 2,000 years in western Mongolia, a state-run think tank said Monday, Yonhap reports.

The National Research Institute of Cultural Heritage said the team discovered the mummy of a man about 165 to 170 centimeters tall at the tomb in the Shiveet Khairhan remains of Mongolia's Altai Mountains.

The team from the research center discovered two stone tombs dating from the third to fifth century B.C. built by nomads in Mongolia and Russia, as well as three other smaller ancient tombs built around 2,000 years ago.

The mummy, found in one of the three ancient tombs, was wrapped in a Chinese-style robe, with the lower part of the clothes missing, and lying in an upright position.
