Overview

Many people have speculated on the destiny of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, which were carried away by the Assyrians in 722 B.C. Even serious attempts to find remnants of the Ten Lost Tribes have never proved where they are now located. This book primarily shows evidence that the tribes went to Samarkand and that their descendants still live in that area. Samarkand has been called a mysterious, exotic, or grand city by different authors. However, little is known about its origin, name and people, even though it has existed for more than 2500 years and was a hub of the Great Silk Route from China and the Great Spice Route from India. The author noticed, after visiting the city in 1971, an amazing number of similarities between the people there and the tribes. This book will interest religious groups, biblical historians and historians of ancient history.
