That is true, Xanadu though did have a resident population of Chinese, Ambassadors from as far as the Christian west, temples, church's (at least one cathedral possibly more than one and I am not sure what branch were represented there) and mosques and served as the summer capital for a while.

Not a great city but a legendary place.

Lost it's importance very quickly and the Mongols themselves preferred there yurt's.

I think that song was actually inspired more by the poem than the place.

Good call it was only when I read that Stately Pleasure dome that a half remembered something jumped into my mind and I remembered it was a poem as well.

Still as we peel back the layers of the ancient past there are more and more interesting thing's beginning to come to light, not Mongolia but not an entire world from it either - a long way though.


Why bring up Siberia, well it is like Mongolia a place that is often overlooked - other than more recent cultures - for possible forgotten civilization's that may predate what we know of today.

The Soviets spent a great deal of time there. Not sure what you are basing your claim on. The Russians lacking funds have been researching at a lower level but not ignoring it all.

Going to Google Scholar and putting in 'Siberian or Siberia archaeology', turns up a great deal of material.

Oh that site in the video - natural.

Interesting video.

I am a firm believer in antideluvian civilisation. The various stones at megalithic sites, around the world, lack credible low tech explanations.

In Mongolia there is Uyghur Kingdom ruins and others such as-


The Haunted Ruins of Khara Khoto, The Black City of Mongolia

www.ancient-origins.net...

But what I find really facinating is the Tarim Basin mummies.


4,000 Year Old Lost Tribe

One of the most fantastic finds in the last half of the twentieth century has to be the discovery of a Northern European tribe found in the northeast corner of Xinjiang province, near the Celestial Mountains and the Taklimakan Desert on the edge of the Gobi desert.

They even found the Witches of Subeshi.

These were the Magi of old.

Belief is an aspect of religion not science. I find the work of ancestors very credible and since theere is zero evidence of anyone else doing it and no high tech at all, it kinda defaults to hard work & low tech done by motivated cultures that had obtained the expertise by trial and errors and use of elbow grease.

Not 'northern European' but Caucasoid and are of a Caucasian physical type whose closest affiliation is to the Bronze Age populations of southern Siberia, Kazakhstan, Central Asia, and the Lower Volga

What evidence caused you to come to that conclusion?

For lurkers who might know who the mummies are:

Science is a belief system, in no way does science exactly match reality, as seen by attemting to measure the position and velocity of an electron at the same time.

Even has a creation myth, the big bang.

The magi statement was based on textile comparisons with the old Persians, where the term originates.

Xanadu was built firmly in what was Chin territory - not Mongolia. So, from Mongolia itself, we have Yam stations, Caravanserai and Karakorum.

We also have some Nestorian Christian sites in old Uighar territory but everything else was nomadic.

Sorry no, but you have a belief system. Question does the internet work because we collectively believe it will or is there actual science involved in why and how it functions?

Thanks for the clarification on the Magi.

Ha, the stately pleasure dome, that is cool, didn't know it's location was established, or that it was being excavated.

Mongolia is certainly a fascinating place, full of secrets and mysteries.


Decreed by Kublai Khan?

(sorry. RUSH reference there..)
