Steppe Mounted TribespeopleBorn in the saddle, horsemanship comes naturally to the men of the steppes.
Far from being simple, ignorant barbarians, the various steppe tribes had a great cultural wealth. Originally occupying the land between the Caspian Sea and the northern shores of the Black Sea, many steppe peoples migrated westwards from the 6th century BC onwards. By geographical location they were the first to come into contact with the marauding, murderous Huns. All steppe warriors were exceptional cavalry, highly skilled with composite-recurve bows and deadly hand-to-hand fighters. Grave goods suggest that steppe women were as warlike as their men, and probably fought alongside them in battle. This may well be the origin of the Greek myths of Amazon warrior women.
