Central Asia

Central Asia lies at the fulcrum of the development of complex societies, straddling major ecological, topographic and cultural boundaries. It is of considerable significance in the development of Neolithic and Bronze Age societies, including the Bactria-Margiana Archaeological Complex, and in the growth of the empire systems, manufacturing industries and trade, from the Iron Age to the early modern era, along the Silk Roads. The region has a long history of Soviet archaeological research, much of which is poorly disseminated outside the Russian-speaking world, and there is a complex use of heritage in the present-day post-Soviet republics.
