  • Paired square piles of rough mountain stones or smooth river stones or a combination of the two types in the Mongolian Altai. Most mounds are probably funerary in function; thatis, they were raised at the time of an individual?s death and to mark that person?s burial. Whether, however, the body was actually placed under the mound or in a burial chamber sunk into the ground, varies according to period and culture English [en]
