Thus, few major cities developed in the region.Most of the groups of Central Asia were nomadic peoples who rode horses and herded livestock on the region’s vast steppes.

This way of life continued until the s, when the Soviet Union forced many of the groups to abandon their lifestyle and settle on collective farms and in cities.
