Red-haired Scythians

Battle-Scythians-and-SlavsMeet a fierce group of nomadic redheads that lived 2500 years ago in what is present day Crimea. These people created arrowheads that could pierce metal armor. Shamans would mix blood and venom from vipers and dip the arrows to make them doubly lethal. A recent archaelogical find revealed a golden cup with residue of opium and cannibis on the inside. Female warriors have been found in graves wearing armor. It has been suggested this is the source for the Amazons. Then Amazons would have been redheads. Figures-don’t mess with a redheaded woman!
