“This site is absolutely incredible!” explains Albrecht Rümschtein, an historian from the Lorand Eötvös University in Budapest and member of the team of specialists investigating the tomb. “We found many horse skeletons, as well as various weapons and other artefacts, all traditionally associated with Huns. These objects include a large sword made of meteoric iron, which could certainly be Attila’s legendary “Holy War Sword of the Scythians”, allegedly given to him by the god Mars himself. In fact, this definitely seems to be the resting place of the almighty Attila, but further analysis needs to be done to confirm it.”
 
 
We can only wait in hope that it's true.
 
Thanks Penelope.

The kings were usually buried beneath rivers when they died. All the nomadic steppe tribes buried their chieftains the same way, including the mongols.

Cool thread. This reminds me. Allegedly, Alaric the Goth is buried underneath the Busento River in Southern Italy.

What amazes me is how, as time goes by we can see more deeply into the past, thanks to archeology, genetics and science.

I don't think anyone is trying to fool you, nor do I get the impression that anyone would care either way.

I honestly do not know what this is about, but whatever the problem is, it doesn't belong here. Please, if at all possible, resolve the issue so this history forum can remain a fun experience for all to enjoy. Thank you. Smile

Sorry Penelope, it appears that it may be a hoax.
 
See:-http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-history-archaeology/does-newly-discovered-tomb-hungary-belong-attila-hun-001488
 
Two days ago an announcement was made that construction workers building the foundations of a new bridge over the Danube River in Budapest, Hungary, had uncovered an ancient burial chamber with researchers claiming that it belonged to the infamous Attila the Hun, one of the most feared enemies of the Western and Eastern Roman Empires in the 5th century AD.  Word of the discovery quickly spread around the internet, however, it now appears that the story was nothing more than a hoax.

es-bih:

I read an article on the Ancient Origins site (I think that was it) that claimed that a grave had been found that was believed could have been Atilla the Huns Grave. 

On finding graves, archeologists never claim outright that it is the grave of a particular person until other scientific tests have been performed.

So, we await the results of those tests.

Good to hear from you again. Smile
