Full Title:
An Historical Atlas of Central Asia" written by Yuri Bregel. This is stated on Page no 05 of this book.


Central Asia has thousands of archeological sites, beginning from the paleolithic down to the recent Islamic. The prehistoric sites are outside of the scope of this atlas, which begins with the end of the Achaemenid period.

Archeological work began in Central Asia during the last decades of the 19th century, with the first Russian (mostly amateurish) archeological excavations in Western Turkestan and western and Russian scholarly expeditions in Eastern Turkestan. During the following century archeological work developed on a large scale, especially in the former Soviet Central Asia, but also in Eastern Turkestan and Afghan Turkestan. In the former
Soviet Central Asia some archeological work was done since the 1920s, but large scale and systematic archeological work began since the mid1930s, by several major long-term expeditions from Moscow, Leningrad (now St.Petersburg), and Tashkent. In Eastern Turkestan the study of archeological remains was undertaken, since the 1890s, by a number of relatively short-term expeditions of British, Russian, German, French, Japanese, and (lately) Chinese scholars. In Afghan Turkestan archeological excavations were begun in the 1920s, originally by French scholars, and later also by American, Japanese, Italian, Russian, and Afghan archeologists. As a result of these multinational efforts, numerous archeological discoveries have been made. Ancient and medieval remains that have been discovered range from single objects, like weapons, utensils, coins, and works of art, to single structures, like temples, palaces, and fortresses, to entire settlements and cities. Material produced by the excavations comes from all historical periods. A number of ancient and medieval cities of Central Asia has been systematically studied by archeologists. In the city of Penjikend,which ceased to exist in the 8th century A.D., almost 50% of its territory has been excavated
