What was the difference between the fate of the barbarian nomads who moved to the lands of Byzantium from those who settled in China? What is the reason for this difference?

In the lands of China, nomadic herding is impossible; here the barbarian nomads were forced to completely change their way of life, and usually they disappeared as a special people.
