6536Yuchi = Yueh Chi?
- May 1 6:40 AMMike, I remember we discussed the Yuchi some time back as being
related to some Old World group. The one that comes to mind are the
nomadic horsemen who harrassed the Chinese, called the Yueh Chi. I
can't remember the era in which they lived but I've seen illustrations
of them from an old Chinese tapestry which recounts the abduction and
ransom of a Chinese princess by the Yueh Chi. It was at the time of
the Great Wall as I recall. Also I think I remember that the Yueh Chi
were not Chinese but Eurasian steppe nomads. Perhaps the caucasoids
recently found in China?
