While at IAS, Gideon Shelach-Lavi will be studying medieval long-walls of the Mongolian steppe. These walls, which were built between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries, cover a distance of over 3,500 kilometers, but it is unclear who built them and for what purpose. Shelach-Lavi’s work will combine archaeological, historical, and paleoclimatic data.
