This article provides textual interpretations of legal manuscripts written onto birch bark as a genre in the Mongolian literary tradition. The birch bark manuscripts were found in the Khar Bukh Ruins and are kept at the Mongolian National Library. They feature special glyphs and writing features typical of the 16th–17th centuries. They also reflect the absorption of various Mongolian dialects, as well as Tibetan, Sanskrit and loanwords. The writing also provides insight into the lives of the legal scribes.
