THE ORIGIN OF THE KURDS 2011

The Origin of the Kurds
Abstract


Findings of this first interdisciplinary study suggest to connote Kurds as indigenous Northern Fertile Crescent people and descendants of ancient multi-ethno-cultural mountain dweller civilizations, who originated out of a native autochthonous Neolithic population of ancient farmers and shepherds north and north-east of Mesopotamia. They were later linguistically Indo-Europeanized by militarily organized groups and elites who immigrated into the area obviously from Central Asia and the Indian sub-continent primarily via the steppes of what is South Russia and the northern plains of Iran of today. Some of the immigrant elites could have been born already in Eurasia.
