A team of archaeologists has announced the discovery of an important mid-7th century burial, which is most likely the final resting place of a japanese emperor.

The first elements of this structure were found three years ago, at which point a section of the outer moat was found. However, with subsequent discoveries, there has been no doubt what type of burial it was.

The overall site is very large. The square burial mound is estimated to be 70 x70 meters long, which led the researchers to deduce that whoever was buried there was a person of a very high degree, and with almost total certainty, an emperor.

One of the theories suggests that the burial mound was built by the emperor Jomei (593-641), father of two other much better known emperors: Tenji (626-671) and Tenmu (?-686).

The other theory states that the person buried here would be Soga no Emishi (? -645), an important regional military commander who was expelled after a power struggle.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
