    ... different from those of Georgia. Denis, while born in Uzbekistan, said he was a Russian (his parents were originally from Russia). He was very knowledgeable about Timur, but when asked a question about the politics, he just said that he was not interested in it and that was the end of the discussion.

    ... the continent; Ulugh was mediocre in war, and yet is immortalised by having both a lunar crater and an asteroid in his name. His star catalogue of 1437, Zij-i-Sultani, is the thesis that earned him such celestial doctorates. And it was researched at the observatory that had been completed some thirteen years previously.

    ... on one of these ancient buildings, you can make a rough guess as to its age.

    Addendum: Here's a rather different view of Amir Timur, commonly called Tamerlane in the history books. From Steven Pinker's book The Better Angels of Our Nature :
