Moving occurred in three waves: around 4500-4000, 3500 and 3000 BC. E. e. Constant pressure steppe cattle led to the emergence of patriarchal society that used horses, built fortifications on the hills, buried under mounds of dead and bow solar deities. This led to a gradual merger of peaceful matriarchal farming communities "old Europe" of the Indo-Europeans that are dominant elite, changed the linguistic trajectory of Europe.
