 History of Asia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The history of Asia can be seen as the collective history of several distinct peripheral coastal regions, East Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East linked by the interior mass of the Eurasian steppe.
The earliest known such central expansion out of the steppe is that of the Indo-Europeans which spread their languages into the Middle East, India, and in the Tocharians to the borders of China.
Thus the nomads who conquered states in China, India, and the Middle East were soon forced to adapt to the local societies.
