Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai : An Atlas
Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai is an atlas that examines the distribution of ancient surface archaeological discoveries within the mountainous region of northwestern Mongolia. For thousands of years, this region was inhabited by hunters and pastoral nomads who erected great stone altars, burial mounds, and standing stones in the valleys through which they moved. With vivid maps and photographs, this book presents the cultural heritage of this rugged environment, focusing on the interconnection of the surface structures and the landscape. This atlas will appeal to both the specialist and the general reader interested in ecotourism, preservation, geography, and ancient human cultures.
