The twenty essays in this book originated from a Metropolitan Museum symposium held in conjunction with the exhibition “The Golden Deer of Eurasia: Scythian and Sarmatian Treasures from the Russian Steppes” (2000–2001). Texts by prominent scholars include: “The Prehistory of Scythian Cavalry: The Evolution of Fighting on Horseback” by David W. Anthony; “Steppe Nomadic Culture and Political Organization” by Thomas J. Barfield; “Mobility, Art, and Identity in Early Iron Age Europe and Asia” by Peter S. Wells; “The Gold of the Griffins: Recent Excavation of a Frozen Tomb in Kazakhstan” by Henri-Paul Francfort, Giancarlo Ligabue, and Zainullah Samashev; and “Discovery of a Royal Burial of the Scythian Period in Tuva” by Konstantin V. Chugunov, Anatolii Nagler, and Hermann Parzinger.
