We are glad to present the next day of visiting Margush. It is the 5th center of civilization found in the Bronze Age. It means "lowland", or by the Greek name of Margiana. It has been progressively exposed since the early 1970s by Professor Viktor Sarianidi, who pates the Margiana Archaeological Expedition. The Bronze Age sites were found in the northern edge of the present-day oasis as desert. Climatic change and advanced desertification produced the desertion of the area, with the result that the ruins of the Bronze Age reimbursements are well conserved underneath the desert soils. The Margiana sites had close relations at Bactria (northern Afghanistan). Sarianidi contends that the Bactria or Margiana complex was the main center of ancient civilization, and has gambled that Margiana may even have been an origin of Zoroastrianism.
