Maykop Enigma

The article "Maykop enigma" was placed in the section "Hypotheses", where two possible explanations for the hypothetical relationship of the Sino-Tibetan and North Caucasian languages are given. One explanation is based on the impact on Sino-Tibetan languages of the speakers of the Maykop culture migrated to the east till China. The second explanation issues from the possibility of the location of the Urheimat of the Sino-Tibetan languages in the Near East.
