The Scythians led a nomadic life on lands from the Caucasus till the Carpathians foothill for seven centuries terrifying nearby tribes and peoples. There is no trace of furs, clothes or things left in their burial places. It appears that only gold was imperishable. Invaluable items made by Greek and Scythian craftsmen that are preserved in the Hermitage authentically transmit appearance of ancient people and their environment.
