Q:it's pre-scythian, but check out the book The Horse, the Wheel, and Language by David W. Anthony. (i'd link to it on amazon if the ask box wasn't so picky.) i'm 3/4 through and it's pretty interesting if you're into that sorta thing. also, love your photos!
Aw, thank you a lot! Pre-scythian -> which post exactly? I’ve been just copying the descriptions from sources [lazy me;x], want to correct it now. Googled the book so far, there’s even a whole chapter online as a sample. Author tries to comprehend interesting topics indeed. Thanks for the recommendation, will try to order it! Just hoping it’s not written in too complex [academic] way in general, vocabulary-wise, English isn’t my first language. BTW wondering if there’s much about the connection to Slavic cultures? The group of Slavic languages [including Polish, my mother tongue] are considered by the experts to be of eldest origins because of the grammar complexity. There are also scientific proofs [including genetic analysis] that the people of Eastern Europe and North India have the same ancestors, most likely from a nomadic pre-Scythian culture. Polish-Lithuanian noblemen of 16th-18th centuries strongly believed that they were direct successors of ancient Sarmatians, a part of Scythian culture group. Google “Polish Sarmatism” if interested. Anyways, I’m not an expert but love to read more about it - everything about humanity’s ancient past seem to connect in a wider aspect than is being taught.
