Mounted Archers - The Beginnings of Central Asian History

£17.99

Product description

1st edition
Very good condition with little to no shelf wear
In the second century BC, on the remote north-western frontier of China, a tribe of mounted archers overran the land of another. Dr. Torday has painstakingly pieced together the trail and identity of the warlike tribes involved, using the evidence of contemporary Chinese annals, Greek authors, scattered coins, a few surviving names and some legends which have been recorded. 'Mounted Archers' is the first monograph to cover the history of this migration from China to the Hindu Kush, and from its antecedents to the time when the migrants came to rule all the land from the Aral Sea to the mouth of the Ganges.
