A Scythian warrior burial in the modern day republic of Tuva has been uncovered – and remarkably tomb robbers never reached the treasure in the tomb. It is on a par with the treasure of Tutankhamon, it is alleged, and there are a lot of images, spilling out of the pages at http://siberiantimes.com/science/casestudy/features/f0212-focus-on-tuva-…
