Artifacts strongly suggest that these burials belong to nobility or members of the royal family.
Mean HTC palaeomagnetic direction is Dm = 8.2°, Im = 63.7° ( = 3.9°) for Arts-Bogd.Because of their similar ages, we combine data from Shovon and data previously obtained from Khurmen Uul (92.0 ± 4.0 Ma), recomputed in geographic coordinates, and not in tilt-corrected ones as in our previous interpretation, at the Shovon locality.The combined final average palaeomagnetic direction for Shovon-Khurmen Uul is Dm = 7.4°, Im = 62.7° ( = 5.2/6.3 for Arts-Bogd (average age: 104.6 ± 6.6 Ma).These poles are consistent with those from the European apparent polar wander path (APWP) at 90, 100 and 110 Ma, and other published pole from the Mongol-Okhotsk suture zone, Amuria and North China blocks.This confirms the lack of a discernable latitudinal motion between Amuria and Siberia since their final accretion by the Late Jurassic—Early Cretaceous, and reinforces the idea that Europe APWP can be used as a reference for Siberia by the mid-Cretaceous.Your use of the Site after such changes will be deemed your acceptance of the changes.

We report a combined geochronology and palaeomagnetic study of Cretaceous igneous rocks from Shovon (44.4°N, 103.8°E) and Arts-Bogd (44.3°N, 102.2°E) localities in the Gobi Desert, south Mongolia.
K—Ar dating based on seven rock samples, with two independent measurements for each sample, allows us to propose an age of 94.7 ± 1.3 Ma for Shovon locality and a 98.2 ± 1.4 to 118.3 ± 1.7 Ma age range for Arts-Bogd.
Adornments strongly indicate that these burials date to the Great Mongol Empire period and may relate to the Golden Horde lineage of Genghis Khan.
