NEH - The Mongols and the Eurasian Nexus of Global History (Useful Links)


The Mongols and the Eurasian Nexus of Global History



The Internet makes available a stunning - and at a times, simply overwhelming - amount of material on the Mongols and the influence they have had on Global History. Our intention on this page is to assemble links that you have either used in the past and found particularly worthwhile, or that you discover in the course of your project development research here during the program - what you might think of as a "best of the Web" collection. Should you have links you deem worthy of inclusion, please send access information (URL) to either Joseph Harroff or Audrey Minei and we'll see that they get uploaded onto the site.
