Located in northern central Asia, a group of nomads thrived as they were isolated from the rest of the world. These nomads were known as the Mongols. Their name comes from their homeland, which was known as Mongolia.
Their isolation protected them from outsiders and allowed the Mongolian people to grow stronger and their technologies to gradually improve.
Like other nomads in the region, the Mongols lived off the land around them. They lived in tents which allowed them to migrate from place to place in search of the best hunting grounds and the most fertile soil.
For the most part, these nomads lived in small tribes that were united by their common family relationships. Tribes often joined together forming larger co-dependent tribes that offered greater protection and stability.
