• The World of the Scythians

By Renate Rolle. Hardback. Published b y B T Batsford, Ltd in 1989. Very good condition.

In the eyes of the ancient Greeks, the Scythians were northern Barbarians, with bizarre and blood thirsty customs, notorious for their drunkenness. To their neighbours, the Archaemenid Persians, they were a race of restless horsemen, feared for their famous fighting prowess and viewed as a constant threat. it was not until recently that, as a result of research carried out in the Soviet Union, archaeologists and historians have been ablet o dispel these stereotypes and reveal a new, more complex picture of this ancient people.

A fantastic book with many coloured plates.
