The Scythians were warlike nomadic horsemen who roamed the steppe of Asia in the first millennium BC.

Using archaeological finds from burials and texts, Barry Cunliffe reconstructs the lives of the Scythians, exploring their beliefs, burial practices, love of fighting and their flexible attitude to gender.
