Firstly, cool site. Secondly, I was wondering if I could get some information about the creator of this site, partially because I'm wondering if I cite it for Wikipedia. Thirdly, I'm wondering if you need any help with this project. I'm a web developer by profession but I'm a history major via Rutgers University, and a history lover by passion, so I thought I'd offer my skills.
Dear John Thomas, you can cite anything that you want for any open public educational purposes. Predominate part of what we post is referenced, you can cite the sources directly; a very minor part is not attributed, but the sources can be identified, the sources, originals, publication data, and references are all provided. You are better off referring directly to the sources.

How I can write PM to other users? Thanx
Dear DexExtits, you would have to come up with your own method. Using this Feedback would be clumsy, and public. Norm

I've made an interesting observation while studying ancient history of India (according to Mahabharatha and Ramayana). It appears that "mleccha" (barbarians) of the west (Afghanistan, Pamir, Central Asia, etc.) bear turkic names, as well as some non-"mleccha" states. Term "aryan" here is used to denote original IE- speaking Indian nations who followed Dharma, unlike "mleccha" of the west. Kamboja - unknown name, possibly turkic horsemen who lived in northern Pakistan area before Yueji/Tocharian/White Hun invasion. There are several regions of Kamboja - one K. live in the valley of Hindus; one in Himalayas; one in Pamir (Parama Kamboja) Tushara - Tokhar/Tuxar (modern "Uyghurs"); one live in Himalayas, another live in Chorasmia. Parada - ? (probably Pards/Parni/East Parthians), Badakhshan. Aswaka - Assacenoi or Assakeon. As+Saka tribe union, Afghanistan. Yavana - probably greeks (Ionians), however there is proof of their nativity. Pahlava - West Parthians. Kipchak-speaking Turkic folk. Probably ancestors of modern Karakalpaks. Bahlika - Balkhians. Their culture was reported to be different from indian aryans. One live in Afghanistan, another in Punjab. Gandhara - Gandarii/Kangars. Legendary buddhist kingdom from Pushto lands of Pakistan. Hara Huna - ? maybe Black Hunns. Southern Uzbekistan/Tajikistan area. Saka - Qazaq/Kazak/Sacae/Scythians. Bactria. Madra - ? (Madjars?). Reported having familiar culture with Bahlika. One lived in Pakistan, another lived on Qazaq-Uzbek border (odd). --- It is not clear where the border between invaders from the west (mleccha) and natives (aryans) was. But I noted that Saraswati fits this border perfectly. However if we take into consideration the presence of Kuru kingdom in the center of India and presence of Kuru tribe in modern Kyrgyzstan area, it only adds more confusion. I hope it helps in your research! Keep this great site working! Thank you very much!
Dear Ilyas, thank you for a ton of interesting observations, and kind words. Norm

Is there any way to find out where you got the map "World According to Strabo 25 BCE”, in your Late Antiquity section? I would like to use it in a book about Cleopatra but need to know who owns it and get a high resolution version for the book. THanks

Hi. Congratulations to this site. Could you tell me the book where i can find the sentence "R. Stiehlel writes, it is quite obvious that language of old Avesta is closely tied to ancient Altaic languages." You havent gaved the source. I need that information for my own searchings. Thank you.

dear the organizers of the website. Thank you so much for your endless effort to make our heritage visible and sufficient. I am creating an atnhology of descriptions and accounts of travelers on History of Kyrgyzstan in Russian. It will cover 5 BC to early 20th century. For this I am going to search several Russian-language web-resources on Central Asia, in particular Kyrgyzstan. We need such anthology for several teaching courses such as History of Kyrgyzstan, History of Central Asia, Politics of Central Asia, Anthropology of Kinship. I am going prepare it in Russian because I would like also to cover the learning interest of those students wo don't have much access to the Internet and who can read it in Russian. Would you be so kind as to permit me to use some mterials in the anthology. I will include the reference to your site. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, Cholpon Turdalieva As.Professor American University of Central Asia

"Semantics: The first observation is that the dictionary confirms the old adage: Scratch a Russian, and underneath is a Tatar (i.e. a Türk). The scope of "Türkisms" in Russian is a language in itself; with a 1,412-word root vocabulary you can write a book, a poem, or an article on any subject in the Middle Age life. Moreover, without the Türkic words, no book, poem, or an article can be written in Russian on any subject." "Moreover, without the Türkic words, no book, poem, or an article can be written in Russian on any subject" yea, you wish your 1ooo something words were so important. of course you CAN write anything without using Turkic words. This was just so stupid to say. Every Turkic word like "obezyana" for instance has a synonim which will be not a Turkic word, for instance "primat." etc, think for your selg. I just could not stop laughing when i read your claim. Don't be stupid, remove it from you site.
Dear Yanina, thank you for a nice citation. What we see here is, first, a thick layer of Bulgarian, Kipchak, Oguz, etc. admixture that was a base for the Rus language and culture, officially attributed in the last 300 years to the petty survivors of the 4,000 Mongolo-Tatars in Batu's disposal. Is not that a deliberately fake history? Secondly, the brave people like Shipova must be a pride of the country, she must be admired and remembered, and serve as a model of a real scientist of the country. Thirdly, you can remove "Obez'yana" and "Vorota" and "telega" and "Soyuz" form the language, but what are you going to do with that stupid Pushkin? Unfortunately, he used all these kind of words of his language. You revise Pushkin, Derjavin, Chernyshevsky, Turgenev, Tolstoy, Khruschev, Brejnev, Eltsyn, Putin, Medvedev, and we will return to the subject. Next time, try to write a sentense without those Turkic words you were using in Russian reverse translation. Thanks, Norm
