Nomad sketch and some articles from

I did a ball pen sketch of a nomad, generic ancient Scythian/Saka perhaps, last weekend.
I took a quick photo of this sketch with my Canon Power Shot  and then it occurred to me to work it over with GIMP
Hence the results:

The new articles I do recommend from
Florin Curta, The image and archaeology of the Pechengs
Mario Fales, Everyday Life and Food Practices in Assyrian Military Encampments
Michel Kazanski, Les Alains et les Sarmates en Occident romain a l'epoque des Grandes Migrations: Donnes archeollgiques.
Petr Žákovský, Dussacks with broad blades and a probable method of their manufacturing
