The Sarmatian Treasure (2008)

Atlas Media

The Sarmatians were an Iranian people of Classical Antiquity, flourishing from about the 5th century BC to the 4th century AD. Their territory was known as Sarmatia to Greco-Roman ethnographers, corresponding to the western part of greater Scythia (modern Southern Russia, Ukraine, and the eastern Balkans). At their greatest reported extent, around 100 BC, these tribes ranged from the Vistula River to the mouth of the Danube and eastward to the Volga, bordering the shores of the Black and Caspian seas as well as the Caucasus to the south.

Documentary Description

The Sarmatians occupied the vast territory of the Eurasian plains; they were an integral part of the ancient world. They were skillful and brave warriors; they collaborated with Rome actively by sending mercenaries to the Roman army and participating in the military campaigns of the ancient world. They were also active in the economic interchange. The Sarmatians declined in the fourth century with the incursions connected to the Migration period (Huns, Goths, Turks). The descendents of the Sarmatians became known as the Alans during the Early Middle Ages, and ultimately gave rise to the modern Ossetic ethnic group.

In 'The Sarmatian Treasure' you will see a unique gold treasure by the Historical and Archeological Museum in Azov. There, in the plains of the Azov region, archeologists perform intense research of the ancient culture. The gold of the Sarmatians helps unravel amazing mysteries. This is a joint project between Maestroproffilm Workshop and the National Museum of Azov. Well-known historians and archeologists served as consultants and participants for the project.
