CULTURAL SPHERES OF THE MONGOLIAN WORLD ORDER Steppes of Mongolia45 The Mongolian Way of Life Traditional life on the Mongolian steppe was extremely harsh, environmentally and socially. It was only possible at all through a well thought–out strategy of life, and of resource use developed over the centuries involving near constant movement. 46 Two types of seasonal movement were involved. The most common was transhumance. It required alternation between low–lying winter pastures and mountain summer pastures, with as much of the year as possible being spent at high altitude.

They had killed a three–year–old deer and were cooking its ribs and intestines. 50 This same tradition was also one underpinning for the great feasts later sponsored by the Mongolian qan of empire and post–empire days as described by Marco Polo: And when the Great Kaan has his table for any formal court occasion he sits thus; for his table is considerably higher than the others. He sits positioned to the north so that his face is directed south and his primary wife sits next to him on his left side.

Doerfer, Türkische und mongolische Elemente im Neupersischen (Wiesbaden, 1963–75), I, 213–5.
