‘Heritage of Horse Warriors of the Steppe’ exhibition opens

The 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Mongolia and the Federal Republic of Germany are being organized through a series of events. One of the events is the “Heritage of Horse Warriors of the Steppe” exhibition, which was unveiled at the National Museum of Mongolia on April 8, and continues until June 8.

Archeological findings in the form of unique nomadic burial cairns were found in Mongolia. The findings were sent to Germany for restoration and have been returned to Mongolia.

The artifacts and findings have been dated to as far back as the 7th century. “Researchers of the Archeological Institute of the Mongolian National Academy of Sciences studied and excavated six burial cairns from 2005 to 2010. The findings were restored in Germany and displayed in Mongolia,” said the event organizers. More than 160 exhibits including Turkic warrior’s armor, saddles, hats, silk coats, a purse made of fish scales, and weapons and tools of Mongolian warriors of the 14th century are displayed in the exhibition.

Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Ts.Oyungerel, Minister of Foreign Affairs L.Bold, Germany’s Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Mongolia Gerhard Thiedemann, and President of the Mongolian National Academy of Sciences B.Enkhtuvshin took part in the opening ceremony of the exhibition.
