Description

When Alexander arrived in Pakistan with his Greco-Macedonian army he found a working civilized culture with cities, bureaucracies, and so forth. The Macedonians and Greeks settled down to rule and started intermarrying with the locals. About 100 years in nomadic Scythians began to migrate into the region, eventually taking over, intermarrying, etc. Wave after wave of outsiders came and stayed over many centuries.
