Modar's Mongol Site    

I started this page because it has been difficult for some SCA members to find
information dealing with the Mongols. Hopefully as this page grows, it will meet
the needs of the populace.

Suggested Readings:

The Secret History of the Mongols, Translated by Francis Woodman Cleaves, Harvard University Press, 1982.
ISBN: 0-674-79670-5
The Secret History of the Mongols is the most important Mongolian source of events of
the Empire period. As such, it is unique and must be regarded as authoritative historical evidence.

Genghis Khan - His Life and Legacy, by Paul Ratchnevsky, Blackwell Press, 1992. ISBN: 0-631-16785-4
This is considered the most scholarly authoritative among the biographies of the Great Mongol.
