Russia Looking To Clone And Resurrect 3,000-Year-Old Ancient Siberian Warriors
Russia’s defence minister has revealed his aspirations to clone ancient royal warriors and their horses in a Dolly the sheep-esque project.
Sergei Shoigu greenlit an archaeological dig at the 3,000-year-old Tunnug burial mound in the Valley of the Kings located in Tuva, Siberia, three years ago and apparently wants to clone the nomadic warriors that have been exhumed.
A modern-day shaman was reportedly drafted in to ensure the spirts weren’t angered by the site being dug up.
According to The Siberian Times, the oldest remains to have been discovered so far dates back to the ninth century BC.
At a Russian Geographical Society session on Wednesday, April 14, Shoigu said, ‘Of course, we would like very much to find the organic matter’, referring to the remains of the ancient people and animals.
