Course: Out of Central Asia

In the history of most of the ancient civilisations of Europe and Asia, there are generally several invasions by people “out of Central Asia”. From leaving Africa 100,000 years ago to the rise of horse cultures in the Steppe region of Central Asia, we see the emergence of Indo-Europeans, Turks, Mongols and Magyars, all of whom played major roles in our history.
