"Construction workers building the foundations of a new bridge over the Danube River in the Hungarian capitol, have unearthed a spectacular 5th century sepulchre. The analysis of the monument revealed that it was the burial chamber of a great hunnic leader, most likely that of King Attila himself. "

Perhaps over-enthusiastic archeologists are jumping to conclusions a bit early, but still, it sounds like a huge find. More here:

I can't seem to find anything online from a reputable website on this.

World News Daily Report... yeah, I had some fun today going through a bunch of articles on that website. Suffice it to say, don't bother. I don't doubt that there has probably been some discovery, but I don't know that I'd even trust that website to get the country right, much less who was buried there.

Discovering Attila's tomb would be an interesting feat but the big difficulty there would be establishing provenance. Is it Hunnic? Is it from the appropriate period? Is there anything within that may lead to an identification of the person within? Etc...

A reverse image search shows that photo is all over the place. For example the below website says it is in China.
Time to dismiss this "Story" and move on. Happy

Until today no one knows where is Attila's tomb situated due to lack of evidence. Even archaeologists in Hungary couldn't prove it.
