Experiencing the culture of Central Asia

The Chinese culture remained a dream of their influence; on one nomadism was to occur in the steppes of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, not in Siberia. Ancient Sumerian cultural state, Babylonia, already 3,000 years BC it was conquered by the Semitic nomads; then winners and losers are gradually mixed up and subsequently acted on the stage of history under the name of Babylonians. Other Semites firmly to the nomadic pastoral way of life, which is so poetically depicted in the ancient biblical stories. Even grander was the first appearance on the historical stage of the Aryan nomads. The old controversial question about the origin of the Aryans, in fact, impossible to answer, because the whole question is wrong: it intertwined two completely different issues, namely the question of where did the blond or at least white head, most of which are currently being used by the Aryan dialects, and the question of the origin of the Aryan language.
