Mongolia - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Mongolia is a very old country. A lot of its modern daily life can be traced back thousands of years. In fact, many modern-day Mongolians live in the same kinds of houses they lived in thousands of years ago!
 
2     The earliest Mongolians were farmers and animal herders. Both jobs required that many Mongolians stay on the move. These people who moved around were called nomads. They moved to chase animals or to better land for farming. Generally, they had few possessions, since they had to move so often.
 
3     Rather than building a new house every time they moved, these Mongolian nomads created interesting portable houses, called "gers" or "yurts." Gers are round and can be easily broken down and set back up. The frames sometimes are made of wood and covered with animal skin or felt.
