Summary
The legend of the Amazons, beautiful and bloodthirsty warrior women has been the focus of speculation for over a thousand years. They are mentioned in the Greek myths and in the historical writings of Herodotus who gives their last known location as the steppes of Southern Russia. For centuries no archaeological evidence could be found to prove they existed. Recently archaeologists unearthed the 2,500-year-old remains of nomadic women buried with weapons and other articles of war in burial mounds located near the Russian town of Pokrovka. This program documents the work of archaeologist Jeannine Davis-Kimball who has led a 10-year investigation into whether any of these long-dead nomads could be the Amazons of legend
