Early Nomad

  • Peter N. Peregrine


relative time period: Follows the Andronovo Tradition and partially overlaps the Scythian Tradition, which slowly expands into the Early Nomad range. Indeed, some would combine Scythian with Early Nomad and suggest a single archaeological tradition covering the whole of the Eurasian steppe during this period. Precedes the Hsiung-nu or Huns who consolidated power over the region by 2175 b.p. under T’ou-Man and his son Mo-tun.
