Ancient Mongolian Tomb Holds Skeleton of Western Man

This man's remains lie close to the tomb of an especially high-ranking Xiongnu man whom he may have served in some way

* DNA analysis of 2,000-year-old bones found in eastern Mongolia reveal a man of Western heritage.

* At the time, the vast territory in and around Mongolia included ethnically and linguistically diverse nomadic tribes.

* Two other skeletons found at the site show genetic links to people living in northeastern Asia.
