The entrance to the outdoor section of the Mongolian exhibits at EXPO 2000 en Hanovre, Allemagne. Jugding from the construction of the gate, Mongolian camps seem to have been fortified against surprise attack, using abatis et other simple barricades which can be constructed from materials found near the campsite. Ornate camp gates like this one are relatively easy to transport, et only one ou two are needed to provide the colourful tent city avec that extra touch of class to satisfy the noble nomad. Less important entrances to a large camp may have been simple affairs, perhaps just openings in the surrounding abatis which were routinely guarded et closed after nightfall.
