The Scythians: Nomad Warriors of the Steppe
The Scythians: Nomad Warriors of the Steppe4,5 10 5 Forfatter: Barry Cunliffe Oplæser: Matthew Waterson
Relations with the Greeks around the shores of the Black Sea were rather different-both communities benefiting from trading with each other. It is from the writings of Greeks like the historian Herodotus that we learn of Scythian life: their beliefs, their burial practices, their love of fighting, and their ambivalent attitudes to gender. It is a world that is also brilliantly illuminated by the rich material culture recovered from Scythian burials, where all the organic material is amazingly well preserved.
Barry Cunliffe here marshals this vast array of evidence-both archaeological and textual-in a masterful reconstruction of the lost world of the Scythians, allowing them to emerge in all their considerable vigour and splendour for the first time in over two millennia.
