Scythian tomb
Swiss archaeologist discovers the earliest tomb of a Scythian prince
They didn't expect to find this one. It was discovered by satellite imagery and Gasperi followed it through. Arzhan 1 was discovered back around 1970, then 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. This one is the oldest, and has the amazing title of Arzhan 0. I can't wait to hear about the results, because this pushes the Scytho-Siberian culture back another 50 to 100 years and roots it closer to the Deer Stone Khirigsuur Complex culture of 1,300-900BC. :-)
