British scientists discovered a historical connection between Kazakhstan and the UK
British scientists have discovered a historical connection between Kazakhstan and the UK. The tamga family sign of the ancient Scythians was discovered in the 1970's during archaeological excavations in the Ribchester village. According to experts, this fact proves that nomadic tribes like Scythians or Sarmatians once fought in the troops of the King Arthur in 241 BC. The ancient tamga is made of lead and has a curved shape. This small-sized exhibit has a great historical value.
PATRICK TOSTEVIN, CURATOR, RIBCHESTER MUSEUM:
- Visitors of the museum admit that the ancient tamga increased an interest in Kazakhstan’s history and current situation in the world.
SHARON TOMLINSON, VISITOR:
- The museum staffs note that in the future this historical connection can expand the cultural and humanitarian cooperation between the two countries. They also intend to establish joint research with the Kazakh museums.
