Summary
The Amazons were fierce, hard-fighting, horse-riding female warriors. Equal to men in battle, legend has it they would cut off their breasts to improve their archery skills and routinely killed their boy children to purify their ranks. For centuries these powerful, sexually dominant barbarian women were believed to be the fantastical invention of Greek myth and storytelling - until now. Drawing on decades of research and a series of recent archaeological discoveries, John Man travels to the grasslands of Central Asia, from the edge of the ancient Greek world to the borderlands of China, to discover the truth about the legendary women of the Eurasian steppes
