Gold of Sarmatians Exhibited in Moscow

The Museum of Folk Arts and Crafts has opened the Gold of Sarmatians exhibition.

The exposition presents the best artifacts of Sarmatian culture (the 5th century BC – the 4th century AD) from the collection of the Astrakhan State Memorial Estate. 

Sarmatians were Iranian nomadic tribes of the end of the early Iron Age. These cattle breeding nomads inhabited steppe areas from Lower Urals behind the Volga River to the watershed of rivers Tisa and Danube. 

The visitors will see precious metal wares from the 5th century BC to the 1st century AD. According to the Sarmatians’ beliefs, gold was the means of communicating with gods. 

The exhibition runs till November 10.
