Mental Enlightenment Scientific-Methodological Journal


The article analyzes the migration of nomadic pastoralists in Ustrushan and its impact on the cultural life of the peoples of the region. It is based on the fact that the region was under the influence of nomads from the Andronovo obshins in the Bronze Age. This process intensified in antiquity and the early Middle Ages, when the migration of the tribes of the Sarmatians, Yuezhi, Huns, Usuns, Khionites, Kidarites, Hephthalites and Turks had a great influence on the cultural life of Ustrushana. This influence is reflected in the material sources of the peoples of the region, which in science is called "Kaunchin culture" and the author reveals the specific features of Ustrushna.
