Ornate Saka treasures discovered in Kazakhstan to go on display

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An upcoming exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England, will introduce visitors to the nomadic Saka people, who lived in Central Asia and Western Europe some 2,500 years ago. Titled “Gold of the Great Steppe,” the show features more than 300 artifacts, including intricately constructed gold jewelry and ornaments for horse harnesses.

Archaeologists discovered the objects while excavating burial mounds in eastern Kazakhstan over the past three years, reports Ben Quinn for the Guardian. In addition to the artifacts, the show includes a reconstruction of a burial found at the site.
