200 extraordinary items

Using wide-ranging contemporary sources, digital media and some of the rarest objects from the museums of Inner Mongolia, this is the story of the Mongols - as it has never been told before. The golden saddle is one of the 200 treasures from the Inner Mongolia Museum in Hohhot, China. It is for the first time that these artefacts are accessible at this scale to the public outside China.
