In the 13th century world, the Mongols constantly showed displays of continuous violence and brutality. They were considered to be savages, and lived far beyond what we know as a “civilized world.” They single-handedly became one of, if not the most powerful empires to have existed, building their empire through violent manors. In this essay, the side that I am going for is that the Mongols were barbaric people, for they portrayed inhumane and mannerless actions while their empire lasted, causing death destruction and the downfall of all of the land they took over.
Mongols didn’t mind killing people and were known for slaughtering millions of human beings. They severed the heads of children, men, and women where they attacked, and even made separated piles for them. Ata-Malik Juvani describes in document 4 that the Mongols would kill everything in the town, including animals, until there was no one left. The number of people couldn’t be counted sometimes and had to make an educated guess because of how many citizens would be killed by the Mongols. The Persian manuscripts were found illustrating men being buried alive as well as Mongols shooting them with arrows (Document 5).
