Found this on English Russia today, thought I'd share it. Seems like in the past year an ancient Siberian fortress was discovered on an island near the Mongolian border west of Baikal.

Here is the official site for the expedition. Sorry, but its' only in russian. An artist's reconstruction of the fort shows it to have a chinese style architecture rather than russian.

According to historians, the fort was one of 17 built on the orders of Bayanchur Khan, sometime during 751 AD. Bayanchur was a Mongol ruler, famed for his eradication of the wild peoples in the Sayan Mountains.

This is quite an intresting find from a place we in the west know so little about. The men building this thing had to be some fast and hardy men to work on an island before winter came in.
