In this episode I discuss a DNA study within the context of history that is new to me and that is the recent DNA discovery of a Scythian Warrior that was mummified who turned out to be a thirteen year old woman.
I reference a variety of online articles in this talk and I rarely do anything like this but I had fun and it was a learning experience as most of you know usually I have guests on that do all the talking.
This discovery not only provides a foundation of truth for the Amazon warriors that Herodotus described but it paints an interesting and complicated picture of the ancient world, its peoples and the Scythian view of Egalitarian society.
