Hi, I'm Michael Hickland and I want to invite you to my free blog http://mysteryofge nghiskhan.blogspot .com/ Since Genghis Khanís death in 1227, countless searches for his tomb have been launched without success. Their motivation is that it is both logical and possible that the largest treasure and store of wealth the world has ever known is buried with him. You may be wondering how this can be? If you look at a modern map, Genghis Khanís territory would include thirty countriesóand more than three billion people! Treasure hunters have been in a frenzy to find the tomb for centuries.In fact, several people have publicly proclaimed to have found the grave site but have been proven wrong. My point is that despite all this potential incentive,why hasnít it been located?Currently scientists using satellite imaging and ground penetrating radar have located a few pottery shards and some images of an underground structure,believin g that the tomb may be within reach.The discovery of these relics generated a Newsweek story on the subject but, in my humble opinion,they are celebrating prematurely. This blog is the result of my desire to share my three years of research on the Great Conqueror, Genghis Khan. This is in preparation for my historical e-novel that will be released later this year. Who am I? My name is Michael B. Hickland. Iím an author, retired corporate executive and amateur history buff. Iím a graduate of the University of Florida and attended Delaware Law School. During my earlier career I traveled extensively to many countries. In Asia,the Mongol ruler dominates history like no other and I am both fascinated and intrigued by this enigmatic leader. So, I decided to devote myself to learning and writing about him. I will be offering both facts and context about the events that shaped the boy, the man, the leader, the conqueror and his motivation through my entries. Furthermore, I will provide information and speculation on the effects of the treasure on individuals and nations as history has unfolded. My book will be historical fiction.
