Genghis Kahn and the Mongol Empire

March 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm EDT

AIA Society: Worcester

Lecturer: William Fitzhugh

Recent research in the grassy steppe of Inner Asia document how a big land with few people repeatedly changed the history of the world. Archaeology, DNA, and history reveal the monumental impact of nomadic pastoralists on world history during the past 5000 years. Genghis Khan’s nomadic empire was the last, largest, and best known, but there were many others. We explore the environments and cultural features that enabled small groups of steppe herders and horsemen to repeatedly conquer, populate, and rule vast territories.
