People of the Horse

 Salvete Omnes,


yes,  we Eurasians are the original people of the horse - from domestication of the equus caballus to inventing of  the chariot, horseback riding and fighint from horseback by turning horses into magnificent war steeds.

so today I will just share  two links coming from this Y-tube channel - Study of Antiquity and Middle Ages - where guests and their host talk about the ancient Indo-Europeans, the people of the horse of the ancient world.

First, ancient Indo-Europeans and their DNA - talk with Razib Khan.

Second, the Indo-Europeans in the Mediterranean world - talk with dr Fred Woudhuizen. - nota bene his excellent works are available on dr. Woudhuizen's academia page.

and I can still recommend prof. David Anthony (here his lecture from 2013) and his book The Horse, the Wheel, and Language. And the academia site  of his wife's, Dorcas Brown, works related to the Indo-European origin, horse domestication  and ancient equestrian research.
and on you can find prof. Marija Gimbutas excellent works.

ride away..
