Tours to Urgench.

“Since the sites of the Suyargan culture, as well as part of the Tazabagyab ones, are located on takyrs lying above the buried dunes, there is reason to believe that around the middle of the second millennium BC. er drainage of this region occurred, possibly related to the Amu Darya breakthrough through the western Sultan-Uizdag segment and the formation of the modern riverbed. Perhaps due to these changes in the geography of the upper delta of the Amu Darya, the colonization movement of the southern tribes that encountered the tribes of the South Korean lake neighborhoods and, judging by the signs of Tazabagyabian influence in the ceramics of Suyargan and later Amirabad culture, assimilated with them, is connected with its secondary settlement. There is every reason to believe that these tribes constituted the eastern branch of the peoples of the Japhetic language system, to which modern Caucasian peoples belong (Georgians, Circassians, Dagestanis, etc.) and to which the creators of the ancient civilizations of Dvorechye, Syria and Asia Minor belonged”
