The Frozen Tomb of Mongolia French documentary from 2013 Genre: Documentary In the heart of the icy steps of Mongolia, a Franco-Mongolian scientific expedition is about to unearth the tomb of a Scythian warrior, 2,300 years old. Time is short as global warming could permanently destroy the remains of this pioneer who came to settle in Mongol territory with his clan. The ritual of deep burial, along with extreme climatic conditions, could allow the archaeologists to discover an intact chamber, preserved by the cold. The main Syrgal tomb, 16 metres in diameter, is the largest in the Mongolian Altai. It is covered with tons of stones that have to be removed by hand.
