Through the analyses of the sources, the volume intends to bring an aspect of the complex Mongolian affair to its historical dimension. The work focuses on Mongol domination in Caucasia, here considered as the area that extends south from the Sea of Azov including present-day Georgia. The period of Mongol domination was not the first one to see an interaction between sedentary cultures and nomadic civilisations; it is however following such an event that Caucasia experienced a coherent leading power from an organised system featuring structural aspects drawn from both models. The genesis of this process and its results constitute the fundamental object of the work.
