Have you followed the link to the pictures of the excavation site and recovered artefacts?
Incredible stuff! The helmet with the sheep horn designs is very unusual, I have never seen anything quite like that but it would suggest that they
were economically pastoralists...and it probably could give us clues to the way in which they selected mates too
But, what I found most interesting was the agate brooch made from a coin and still featuring Athena on the reverse...they were clearly very talented
metal workers, but it also confirms that they had a relationship with Hellenised world.
