Northern Realm Project (NRP)

The Northern Realm Project explores the archaeological landscape of Khovskol aimag in northern Mongolia through field surveys and excavation in order to both understand the funerary history of the region and protect the many substantial burials endangered by looting and natural elements. The project has discovered numerous disturbed graves and has uncovered some of the country’s most spectacular Mongol-period finds, including well-preserved silk tapestries and intricately carved bone objects. NRP also offers hands-on training for student conservators and archeologists in conservation, survey, excavation, and digital recording methods.
