Chapter Summary

This chapter discerns three stages of the migration of the pastoral steppe tribes to Central Asia: stage I-Sintashta-Petrovka; stage II-developed Timber grave and Andronovo of the Alakul', Fedorovo and mixed types; and stage III-late Timber-grave and Andronovo with applied-roller ceramics. The Timber-grave and Andronovo tribes of the Alakul' type emerged in the late second and third quarters of the 2nd millennium BC in the Urals and western Kazakhstan, while the Fedorovo type tribes emerged in central and eastern Kazakhstan. The sites of the steppe population are united under the terms Andronovo; Tazabagyab-Andronovo; of the steppe type. Tazabagyab culture was discovered to the south of the Aral Sea in the desert over the ancient dried-up river-beds of the Amu-Darya. The Semirech'e-Fergana type of monument is represented in Kirgizia, southern Kazakhstan and southern Fergana.

Keywords: Andronovo; central Asia; Fergana monuments; Kazakhstan; Kirgizia; pastoral steppe tribes; Tazabagyab culture; Urals
