The diet and lifestyle of the Mongols was the same as the other steppe nomads so they would be similar in average height and build.

Once you discount the usual "stooped like beasts", "barely human" etc style comments always applied to "barbarian" invaders they don't seem to have been particuarly different.

short and stocky, these are the descriptions for both Turks and Mongols of old times. Mongols and isolated Turks of today fit that description, look at the Yakut/Sakha thread.

Were Mongols, and Turks tall? What about the modern Mongolians?
