The Ancient Empire of Mongolia

43876

With Rollie Lamberson, and Rick Vrem, Professors Emeritus, HSU

Mongolia lies uncomfortably between China and Russia. The ancient Mongol Empire was first established by Genghis Khan in the 13th century. Mongolia encompasses huge expanses of rugged steppes and harsh desert occupied by nomadic herders that make up thirty percent of the Mongolia population. Recently mining and the associated wealth has begun to encroach on the traditional culture. We will visit the capital Ulaanbaatar, but spend most of our time with herders of cattle, yaks, horses, camels, and even reindeer.

Wed., Dec. 8 • 1-3 p.m.
