so we have crossed into 2019 - by by 2018 -:)
I would like to start with a link to quite spectacular page - of Evgeny Kray, Russian illustrator who has been reconstructing the ancient Eurasian nomads.
Here is the link to his VK page
(including wall photos
and album showing his drawing
s based on Scythian kurgan of Kul-Oba artefacts).

above and below some of the plates - with all of quite evident errors in horse anatomy etc - while the costume and armory is his own reconstruction.
|Kimmerian vs Skithian north Caucasus VII c BC|
|Skithian Amazon warrior - north Pontic IVc BC|
|Sarmatian - Kuban steppe, III-II c BC|
|Sarmatina, Filipovka Kurgan|
|Meothic horseman - Kuban region|
|Sarmatian from Bosporan Kingdom and a wounded Skithian - III c BC|
There are many questions and few answers, but this is one giant step into the visualization of the ancient Eastern European warriors and their horse tack.

I think , bah, I feel and have felt for a long time there is a connection between the ancient nomads of our Eurasian steppes and the mounted Indians of the Americas. I have been studying both over all these years.
