The Scythians

The Scythians were a peculiar group of people. Skilled artistic craftsmen and equally skilled warriors with their composite bows and their horsemanship who ruled the Eurasian steppe for much of the first millennia BCE. Anna Juras has done a good job using 19 complete Scythian mitochondrias, tracing them back to the Srubnaya-people that once inhabited the areas south of the Urals, from the northern shores of the Black Sea to the northern shores of the Caspian sea.
