Amazon Warrior Woman – Ancient Sites
For centuries stories of the Amazon warrior women grew in popularity and mystery. It has been recently discovered that these were the women of the Scythian Tribes that lived on the Steppes and shores of the Black Sea, known as Eurasia. Amazon women road into battle on their fierce horses scaring the enemy on the battlefield! Elaborate ancient burials show women held in high esteem interred with weapons and rich grave goods. It is thought these nomadic Scythian tribes may have branched out as similar heritage can be found in Kazakhstan and Mongolia.
In the fifth century BC Herodotus described them: Their women shared the skills of the men: they were supreme horsewomen, mistresses of the bow, fighters and victims of conflict.’ as recent archaeological finds testify.
These empowered women where taught to protect their tribe and look for good farming lands. The women they called Amazons were famed for their skills as warriors and mothers of the future generations.
