Ollios, was Turkmenistan the original homeland of the Turks?
even Today's Central Asia isn't homeland of the Turks. It is located in more east.
left side is proto-turks
First Turkic writing was found in here(North Mongolia)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orhun_inscriptions
You can think somewhere near Altai Mountains(in West Mongolia and Russia). As you know, Turkish language and all Turkic languages are in Altaic language group. I think just this argument can proof that Altai mountains is one of the biggest candidate for being the original homeland of the Turks
