Footmen\'s CampFoot soldiers may gain less glory than riders, but they serve a crucial purpose.
Nomadic tribespeople come from the vast steppes to the north of the Black and Caspian Seas, and were known variously as Scythians or Saka, and later, Sarmatians and Huns. Fighting as light infantry, they were often armed with javelins or medium length spears and used shields covered in animal hide, or scaled with horn or metal. These troops also made extensive use of daggers, straight swords and the fearsome sagaris, a one-handed battle-axe, with both a bladed or hammer-like head and a pick-like point on the reverse for punching through armour. Complimenting foot archers and cavalry, their role was simply to protect the former from the latter. Far from barbarians, steppe culture, although nomadic, was a rich and diverse one.
