Scythian And Thracian Antiquities (Paperback)Books
This work is based upon the contents of six Scythian tombs from Nymphaeum excavated in 1868 - gold jewellery, silver plate, pottery and armour, which tells us much about the Scythian way of life. It also looks at the contents of a Thracian burial. The Scythians were nomads who roamed the Steppes of Russia during the first millennium BC before settling in the region to the north of the Black Sea, where they came into friendly contact with Greek traders. This book is based upon the contents of six Scythian tombs from Nymphaeum excavated in 1868 (a Greek colony in the Crimea) - gold jewellery, silver plate, pottery, armour and weapons - together with the previously unpublished contents of a princely Thracian burial found at Dalboki, east of Stara Zagora in North Central Bulgaria, in 1879.
