The long-lost tomb thought to contain the heart of Ottoman Empire Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent has "almost certainly" been discovered in Hungary, a researcher told AFP Wednesday after a presentation of the excavation findings.Pap's team have been studying the site since 2013 and in October began digging at the exact spot believed to be where he died, aged 71, in early September 1566 .After the Austrian Habsburg Empire drove the Turks from Hungary at the end of the 17th century, both town and tomb were destroyed.The digs – which have been supported by both the Hungarian and Turkish governments – will establish the exact locations of each structure as well as probe a wider area for more buildings.
