 Katta-Kurgan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The town does not appear to be of any great antiquity, although after Alexander the Great 's sack of Marakanda (Samarkand) the centre of cultural life in that part of the Zeravshan valley may briefly have shifted west to the region around Katta-Kurgan.
In 1868, following the fall of Samarkand to the Russians and the annexation of the Upper Zeravshan Valley from Bukhara, it became the border town between Russian Turkestan and the Bukharan Emirate, and the centre of a district.
In 1924 both entities were dissolved by the Soviet regime, and Katta-Kurgan was incorporated in the new Uzbek SSR.

 Methods and Perspectives for Ancient Settlement Studies in the Middle Zeravshan Valley
These are formed by the splitting of the Zeravshan River after its exit from the Turkestan Mountains into the Karadarya and Akdarya branches, and the two main artificial canals, the Bulungur Canal to the north and the Dargom Canal to the south.
The Middle Zeravshan Valley was subject to major, continuous and systematic development projects during the Soviet period, chiefly between the Sixties and the Eighties.

 Zeravshan Summary
The Zeravshan or Zarafshan river (from the Persian word زر افشان, meaning "the sprayer of Gold"), whilst smaller and less well-known than the two great rivers of Central Asia, the Amu Darya (or Oxus) and the Syr Darya (or Jaxartes), is if anything more valuable as a source of irrigation in the region.
To the ancient Greeks it was known as the Polytimetus.
The Zeravshan range or Zeravshan mountains rise to the south of the river.

 Avocet May Undershoot Its Target Of 300,000 Ozs In 2005, But Not By Much.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The benefits of this were delayed as it took longer than anticipated to restructure the ownership of the Zeravshan Gold Company which was a pre-condition for the company’s commitment to purchasing this mining equipment.
Diesel was also in short supply and the reduction in high grade ore for the plant meant that the gap had to be filled by low grade stockpiles.
It may just be that Zeravshan will not hit its target until 2006 when operations at Jilau have been enhanced and in the meantime the final feasibility at Taror will have been completed.

 Tajik-Uzbek Rift over Power Station Plan
Uzbekistan and Tajikistan are at odds over plans to build a hydroelectric power station in the Zeravshan River, highlighting an urgent need for a new regional economic strategy for sharing Central Asia's rivers.
The Zeravshan runs from north-western Tajikistan to the Samarkand region of Uzbekistan.
Samarkand is almost entirely dependent on the river’s water, and Uzbek state media report that a new power station would dramatically reduce the volume of water available for crop irrigation, cause a deterioration in water quality, and have a negative environmental impact on the Navoi and Bukhara regions as well as Samarkand itself.

Elsewhere in the east, Avocet Mining, whose interim results were announced last week, has obtained majority control over the Zeravshan Gold Company in Tajikistan, moving from a 49% stake to a holding of 75%, thus enabling an investment programme for the improvement and expansion of the mine’s operations.
In its interim results announcement, Avocet reports that production at Zeravshan in the six months to September 2004 amounted to 23,000 ounces, compared with 28,100 ounces in the equivalent six months of last year.
The reduction in output at Zeravshan stemmed from diesel shortages and delays in ownership restructuring the Zeravshan company ownership, resulting in a shortfall of high grade ore for the plant, which was made up with feed from low-grade stockpiles.

 Benjamin - The Migration of the Yuezhi through Sogdia - Transoxiana Eran ud Aneran
The most likely location for the discovery of material evidence would surely be somewhere in the valley of the Zeravshan River, which has its source between the Turkestan and Zeravshan ranges in Tajikistan, and then flows west through Samarkand and out into the deserts of Uzbekistan.
Whilst it is clearly impossible to prove that these tombs and their artifacts were left along the Zeravshan by the migrating Yuezhi, there is certainly sufficient evidence to at least entertain the possibility.
As a result of their defeat by the Wusun in 133/2 BCE, and after almost three decades of residency in the Ili Valley, the confederation of the Da Yuezhi was forced to resume its migration westwards, moving initially into the Ferghana Valley.

Mandleshtam argued that the attribution of all of the kurgans as Sarmatian was too generalised and superficial, particularly as various groups of burials displayed quite distinctively different characteristics.
Whilst it is clearly impossible to prove that these tombs and their artifacts were left along the Zeravshan by the migrating Kushan, there is certainly sufficient evidence to at least entertain the possibility.
Thus the only record of their passage through the Fergana and Zeravshan valleys would be their funerary monuments and the grave goods they contained.
