I came accross your page when looking for Ptolemy maps. I read some of the work you have done. It is sure intensive. I am not such academicians(sp) but I like to learn about humanity's movements and races. Thank you. Lisa P.S. By the way, my parents were from Kiev

Dear Folks, just a quick note to let you know that LacusCurtius, including my Ptolemy pages, has moved; on your page (long URL, that's therefore an alias) the links to Ptolemy could be changed. The structure of my site remains unchanged, so it's a global-replace everywhere:    replace by Please get back to me by e-mail from the "contact" page of my site; I have further comments that I really don't want to spread out online all over.... Best, Bill

Dear Karen, I do not know the answers to most of you questions, but you can start getting them at (excellent historical narrative, brief and condensed) and As to the maps, there are many "city myths", manufactured and promoted in the last 100-200 years, in respect to the Turkic people and their history. A look at the basics helps all of us. Not too many scientists can call Ptolemy a liar or a falsifier. With maps, one picture is worth a thousand words. And they are a history, without them there is no history. Thank you, Norm

Dear Friends, I am interested in the Turkic people--and have been since I lived in Turkey for about a year. I know so little about Turkics history though, and though I am just beginning to recognize some things, from previous internet research I have only begun to scratch the surface. So please forgive my questions if they seem too basic for I see your research is extensive. I love the maps. Would you mind including an explanation of what you are illustrating via the maps. I have a general idea since I know that Turks live in the regions. (Oh I wish I knew..what is a Turkic Steppe?) Also, would you please direct me to statistic on the current Turkic demographics? Finally, I have a very basic question: Are the Turkic people 125 M.? My source is unfortunately over 5 years old so I suspect that there are many more now. Thank you for your work which is evident here. And I appreciate it if you can answer the above qeustions. Sincerely, Karen TUrkleri Severim

I came across this site while trying to find information on the Volga Bulgars. I am very impressed with the selections, and think that this is a wonderful tool for basic research on many tukological matters. I am especially happy with your inclusion of a portion of the Dzhagfar Tarikhi, a document I have had looked for unsuccessfully for a long time. Which leads me to ask a few questions, since I could not find another way of posing them: 1. Are you planning to include further materials from the three volumes of the Orenburg Dzhagfar Tarikhi? 2. Can you help me determine what part of the list of Bulgarian rulers from "all" dynasties, which seems to be a collection of notes taken by Nurutdinov from various sources (including modern treatments), is actually based on the old Bulgar sources he cites, i.e., Kul Gali and Gazi Baba? The excerpt from Gazi Baba's text supports much but not all of the information given in the preceding selections. I am especially interested in the genealogical information and actual names given in the original texts for the rulers of the "Hungarian Bulgars" and the "Danubian Bulgars." Whether you can answer this by yourself or refer me to another expert or publications of Kul Gali and Gazi Baba (which I have not been able to locate), your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance, and for setting up this site. Sincerely, Ian Mladjov, University of Michigan

Great work.The amount of materials is striking. Thank you for the wonderful work. I think the interest to Turkology grows noticeably and the exchange of information will develop it further. Please visit my site too:

I was dropped into this page through google search engine therefore not quite sure which site to feedback. Anyway, I took a closer look into the chronicle of Bakhshi Iman and should like to give comments. First and foremost I express my gratitude to the translator who carried our a very laborous and excellent job. Without it I would never be acquinted in the substantial history of bulgar and related peoples of the ancient and early middle ages as presented in the Djagfar Tarihi. I hope this work is not a complete forgery but at least a compilation of factual events. Regarding this we must be of course very cautious when drawing conclusions. But the story is wonderful. A very big Eurasian region is largely animated and we are informed about peoples, leaders, places of the ages we were left without knowledge. Until that we could draw some very limited ideas from the historical works of Byzantine, Muslim and Russian authors. The new information is at large extent differs from the conventional ones, but - at least in my mind – does not contradict to them. What is written about the legendary magyar rulers Almysh and his son Arbat is really shoking. I guess it needs a lot of time to discuss pro and contra arguments on the validity and reliability of the new information. Otherwise the narration of the Tarikhy is surprisingly clear and coherent. It reports on origin and great variety of the name of peoples, highlighting that in many cases they are called after their rulers or settlements and vice versa. Magyars are also mentioned under different names like modjars, sebers, bashkorts, even chyrmishions. All of this is very fascinating. Thank you for making the resource available.
