Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai: An Atlas

Winner of the 2010 AAG Globe Book Award for Public Understanding of Geography by the Association of American Geographers

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. They left behind huge concentrations of rock art in the high valleys-figures that effectively recount their lives.

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.
