Horse Lords – History of the Scythians

Where did the horsemen who swept over ancient Europe before the Roman Empire actually come from?

The culture of the Scythians gives us a deep insight into our own origins. Well worth watching!

The latest DNA evidence is revealing that an enormous number of people of European stock, while descended on the female side from the Stone Age hunter-gatherer artists of southern France and northern Spain, have their paternal ancestry in southern Russia.

Perhaps followed by a second wave once iron became the dominant material used in both warfare and agriculture.
