Scythians: warriors of ancient Siberia

14 Sept-14 Jan. The British Museum highlights the little-known Scythians, nomadic tribes and warriors, who roamed the plains of Siberia 2,500 years ago. 

The museum's exhibition explores the story of the feared Scythians who flourished between 900 and 200 BC. 

Although their encounters with the Greeks, Assyrians and Persians are documented, much of their cultural legacy lay buried beneath the ice for centuries. 

The British Museum displays recent discoveries from Scythian tombs, and the treasures they contained, preserved in the permafrost. 

The artefacts on display include clothes, fabrics, food, weapons, gold jewellery and even mummified warriors and horses.
