Lecture: The Horde - Towards a New History of the Mongol Empire
December 7, 2021 7:45 PM - 9:00 PM at Zoom
Lecturer: Professor Marie Favereau
The Horde is the great Imperial organisation the nomads built in the lower Volga after the Mongol conquest of the 13th century. As this talk will demonstrate, the Horde is also a world-shaping phenomenon that integrated Eurasia along east-west and north-south axis, generating long-distance trade and making the Mongol moment a precursor of the better-known Colombian Exchange.
