Nomadism in Iran

D. T. Potts

Oxford University Press

The Mongol conquest in the early thirteenth century brought much larger numbers of nomads onto the Iranian plateau. Many of these, however, were Turkic tribes. The allocation of pasturage by the Mongol rulers (Ilkhans) of Iran dispersed nomadic groups over large parts of the country, marking the first time that the demographic balance in the population began to shift markedly. Still more nomads entered the region as a result of Temür’s conquests in the late fourteenth century.
