The southernmost part of Central Asia, both east and west, is desert, edged by mountain ranges. It is in the steppe, the oases of the desert, and the foothills of the mountains that cultures change most rapidly from 8000 to 2000 B.C.E.
Although in southern Central Asia the relative chronological positions of various cultures are generally clear, the
absolute chronological dates remain a matter of scholarly debate. Modern "calibrated” carbon-14 dates are up to 500 years earlier than “textbook” dates for Central Asia archeology before 2000 BCE..
• ca. 2200 B.C. E. Irrigation agriculture begins to be used in southwestern Central Asia, allowing the population to move from the foothills into oases along the rivers that flow into the Central Asian desert. The new settlements include large

Several sites in the Southern Urals and northern Kazakhstan contain graves of warriors who are accompanied in death by burials of vehicles with two spoked wheels (defined either as chariots or light carts) and teams of horses. These burials are associated with the Sintashta-Petrovka culture, which has walled towns, usually located in the bends of rivers. The economic base is a mixture of herding (horses, cattle, and sheep) and agriculture. Whether the chariot originated on the steppe, where horses were first domesticated, remains an open question. It is possible that the idea of the chariot eventually reached Shang China along the route where these burials were found.
