History of Uzbekistan

Briefly summarizing the history of Uzbekistan is not an easy task. On the one hand, history goes back more than 3,000 years, although few documents have survived, especially from the early period, because the ruling nomadic peoples were not familiar with written documentation. On the other hand, the territory of Central Asia was not divided into distinct states. The borders changed with each conquest, great empires rose and collapsed, and the region was conquered from different directions. Nevertheless, we can say that the region was formed under the influence of five main invaders: the Persians, Greeks, Arabs, Mongols, and Russians.
