Ancient unicorn lair `discovered` in North Korea
London: Archaeologists in Pyongyang have discovered a unicorn’s lair, it has been revealed.
The unicorn was said to have been ridden by the ancient Korean King Tongmyong, founder of a kingdom, which ruled parts of China and the Korean peninsula from the 3rd century BC to 7th century AD.
According to sources, the location happens to be 200 metres from a temple in the North Korean capital.
“A rectangular rock carved with words ‘Unicorn Lair’ stands in front of the lair,” the Guardian quoted a report as saying.
“The carved words are believed to date back to the period of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392),” the report said.
Archaeologists from the Academy of Social Sciences at North Korea’s History Institute were credited with making the discovery.
