Octavo, softbound (slick white full-color photo. illus. wrappers), 217 pp. Near Fine. From lower cover: What the Scythians and Cimmerians brought to history is still somewhat of a mystery. Herodotus, Strabo, and many other ancient HGistorians spoke of these peoples, but were limited to some degree and in some cases added a sense of bias against them or tried to compare them with their own cultures. The Scythian and Cimmerian peoples were the exact opposite of what some desired them to be or thought. But without their comments, we would still be in the dark. Thankfully we have the Assyrian inscriptions that go into great detail. By taking those inscriptions along with those who wrote about them outside of Assyria, we begin to see a somewhat clear but still fuzzy picture of these nomadic peoples.
Title: March of the Scythians: From Sargon II to the Fall of Nineveh.
