A pretty picture

An online database launched today, 5 March, provides an oral history of Mongolia as told by 600 Mongolian citizens who look back over their lives during the nation’s turbulent recent history and describe their memories and experiences as the country moved from being a part of the Qing Empire, to an aristocratic government, to Soviet-style socialism and, finally, to democracy.

The website has been developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge’s Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit and is now available:
