PAST EXPLORATIONS

Mystery Explored: Lost Empire of Chingghis Khaan
Expedition Dates: July 2 – 14, 2006

Summary:

Chinggis Khaan and his Mongol Horde created the largest land empire in recorded history, and they did it in fewer than seventy years. How were Chingghis Khaan and his army able to achieve this military dominance on such a grand scale? What ultimately became of the great Empire of the Khaans? I traveled to Mongolia to explore his legacy, built a ger on the Mongolian steppe, fired arrows from horseback like a Mongolian warrior, and used DNA science to trace the genetic legacy of the military genius, Chinggis Khaan.
