Description - Scythian and Thracian Antiquities in Oxford by Michael Vickers
The Scythians were nomads who roamed the Steppes of Russia during the first millennium B.C. before settling in the region to the north of the Black Sea, where they came into friendly contact with Greek traders. This book is based upon the contents of six Scythian tombs from Nymphaeum excavated in 1868 (a Greek colony in the Crimea) -- gold jewellery, silver plate, pottery, armour and weapons -- together with the previously unpublished contents of a princely Thracian burial found at Dalboki, east of Stara Zagora in North Central Bulgaria, in 1879.
