The Tashtyk Culture

Postby Luigi » Wed Dec 09, 2020 10:54 pm

This is a very interesting development. I knew that Indo-Europeans had traditionally lived in the Tarim basin but I did not know they lived as far northeast as Yenisei, Siberia. The culture is known for mummification and death masks, many of which survive:

Here is a mummy and a CT scan image of the underlying face:

And today I found what seems to be their ancestors from 1000 years earlier, the Pazyryk culture and the Tagar culture:

And also the Karasuk culture, their ancestors from 1000 years before the Pazyryks and Tagars:

These are all archaeological cultures but got me reading about the historical population they correspond to, the Saka:
