New Russian Gravesite Proves Amazon Warrior Women Were Very Much Real 09:44

For centuries, scholars assumed that Greek myths about fierce warrior women they called Amazons were just that — myths.

But new archaeology confirms what modern historians like Adrienne Mayor from Stanford University had begun to suspect: Amazons were very much real, and they were actually Scythian nomads.

Earlier this month in Russia, archaeologists found the gravesites of four female warrior women — buried together along with their weapons. Mayor says it's the first time archaeologists have discovered remains of warrior women within a range of ages, from about 45 to 50 years old down to about 12 years old.

“These four women were companions in warfare, probably died in a skirmish and were buried together, ” she says.
