I don't think we caught this one, did we?

An international archeological expedition to Lake Issyk Kul, high in the Kyrgyz mountains, proves the existence of an advanced civilization 25 centuries ago, equal in development to the Hellenic civilizations of the northern coast of the Pontus Euxinus (Black Sea) and the Mediterranean coast of Egypt. ...cont'd
edit, we did but not here:

Anyway, here is a picture of one of the artefacts:

You make one small mistake in the plans and 1000s of years later you are still hearing about it.

I would love to see more of the artifacts, like the bronze pot they keep referring to.

I've checked and I can't find anything that shows the artifacts. Found some interesting additional information about the history of the area.

Go down to the last post.

Here is the original story for RIA Novosti.
http://en.rian.ru/analysis/20071227/94372640.html

It's unfortunate that no pictures of the artifacts are yet available. People seem to keep tight control on such information.

Some more commentary - http://arky-news.livejournal.com/52486.html#cutid1
They apparently had some knowledge (advanced perhaps) of bronze metallurgy.

Another commentary on some of the history - http://www.assembly.kz/eng/expo_art_...id=21023164713

It would be interesting if Avestan script/inscriptions were found.

I know of at least two Scythian mummies that have been found. One is reported here -
http://www.spiegel.de/international/...433600,00.html and
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/5283320.stm

Many years ago there was a mummified woman found.

Apparently there is a discussion of Scythian mummies in Ch 15 of this book -
Mummies, Disease and Ancient Cultures
