In response to the eloquent study of this program listed link,
About the work of Dr. Jeannine Davis-Kimball who studies Nomadic Groups of Eurasia and
studies the Amazon links to the Black Sea to the Steppes of China and Russia borders of the lost Sauromatian Culture i.e. pseudo Kossacks-Scythians (post Amazon Women Culture) and who became related to the Kurgan Burials and Culture.
"Amazons in myth:
History's first mention of a race of warrior women comes in Homer's ILIAD, an account of the Trojan War, probably written in the 8th to the 7th century B.C. Homer's Amazons, a race of fierce women who mated with vanquished male foes and kept only the female children they bore, were believed to occupy the area around the Black Sea. Amazon women also crop up in other Greek myths. One of the labors of Hercules, for example, required him to acquire the girdle of the Amazon queen, Hippolyte. The Amazons of Greek mythology most likely had no connection to the women of the steppes, says archaeologist Jeannine Davis-Kimball. "I think the idea of the 'Amazon' was created by the Greeks for their own purposes," she says."
A history of sorts:
The histories of the Greek Herodotus, written around the 5th century B.C., describe a group of female warriors who lost to the Greeks at the battle of Thermodon. Herodotus's Amazons were taken prisoner and put on ships, but overwhelmed and killed the Greek crew. Unable to sail themselves, the women drifted to the shores of the Black Sea, to the territory of the Scythians, a nomadic culture of Iranian descent. The women, Herodotus says, intermarried with the Scythian men, and convinced their new husbands to move northeast across the flat grassy plains, high mountains, and searing deserts of the Russian steppes, where the group eventually evolved into the Sauromatian culture.
The above from the website of PBS program website called 'Secrets of the Dead'.
From Dean Clarke BLS in response to what is not mentioned in the program.
Herodotus has also maps based on Amazons in the region of north western
Africa, and the reason that Dr. Jeannine Davis-Kimball does not look
backward to this issue may be due to the fact that her study does not involve
the information before the earliest mentioning of these peoples by myths and
folklore of Greece yet is still believed to this day to be that of the
Hesperidia Amazons who once lived from Morocco-Mauritania to nearly the steppes
of Egypt, and who existed from nearly Spain to Italy and above to Northern
Greece who at one time aligned with the Pelasgians or Pharsians. There is some
folklore stories about them connected with the Akal Teke Horse who played an
important part of the Silk Roads trade. Its history seems to go back to the
horse races of the "Mercators
Map dated 1627 showing a place titled Hippodromos Aethiopiae (ΊppVomordo
which lay on the west coast of Africa, in today’s Mauritania. What was such a
major horse centre doing, so far from anywhere? If you find today’s Nouakchott," noted by Mr. Gill in a correspondence. Also, "The origin of Welsh
in legend is from the Cumerai (Cymru) of ancient Troy. This was from where the
ancient Celts moved first to Latium where they settled in Alba Longa and then
to Britain in 1028 BC. (NB). This previous point in regards to the Welsh Tale
origin as being from near Troy and I can see the Horse connection on the coins
of both Troy, of Hellespont and Britannia with also had long since had
the significance to the Horse Culture of the Celtic who were also in some cases
nomadic peoples. Further, It looks as though the Garamanteans, who were the
indigenous population of the ancient and fertile (central) Sahara, could have
been amongst the first people to have known about the exodus from Atlantis. As
you know, these people were the ancestors of the Maures (Mauretania, Mali), who in turn became the Moors. Etymology indicates that the people named Mu could possibly be
related somehow to the (Mau of the) Maures? Also about the Horse, " between us from differing angles we think
that Arkhal Teke may well have been one of the original breeds and that it
could have been the one used in Atlantis.
Α-κάμαντι Akamanti - untiring
Ταχέως takeos – quickly. These both make sense.
The same stem, Akamanti would have been used for the camel too – untiring. *(I
Τικτω – Teke, Tikto - beget or begotten, of divinity,
man and beast, is also likely if you look at the Welsh below). Α-κάμαντι,
Akamanti – untiring would also have been Akalanti. The M and L were
exchangeable sounds in both greek and Latin.
You only have to read about the Amazons of classical scholars to find out that one of their oldest homes was the region around the extinct Lake of Triton which is south west of Tunisia!
I hope this suffices to put forward a very plausible aspect of nomadic post Azillian Amazon life, for both the Doctor and her study respectfully and to the reverse discussion of a greater mystery then where hence the Amazon finally rested. Hopefully, this article will inspire those to wake up to the real origin of the story and I say go ask a Berber first before someone in the Black Sea. The real resting place of a Amazon would be some woman from Morocco-Mauritania to Dogon and Central Africa to Sudan-Chad-Ethiopia who has red hair and hazel eyes, yet has a tall stature compared to other Africans as a lost Amazon Garamantian and who may be black or brown now but was almost bronze white or red before in the mitochondrial line (maternal). It would seem the oldest knowledge known about them is that they were akin to Canary Island People and of Cro Magnon descent who moved to North West Africa, Sicily, Tunisia, and finally were of Ancient Ethiopia region i.e. the western one (Ethiopia) not the present eastern one. From were they came before this is the greatest gypsy question of all, but the tale goes of ATLANTIS. The fact the gold and knotted tiara on the Black Sea conical headdress in a Kurgan Burial of the Amazon woman once depicted by itself a much older headdress found in ancient Libyan-Tunisia Tribes a style that stretched from that region to nearly Persia like the huts of tied reeds, and the bee queen? We must remember the basis of their identified name of 'Ama' and 'Amazu' related to a ancient earth or sky goddess and also indicates what is 'red colored like Ochre' and of the 'salt trade' or salt road (south) first then later became the silk road when they went north. For this reason Amazon is often connected to the metal trades such as Brazza and Brazil terms due to bronze or gold color and is a generic term for tall women related to protection of their trades. Their secret name before the Amazon in general became their cultural identity was 'Corku', Gorku and Corcu thus a Karakon Person of Carthage was often confused with the adjacent Amazon tribes. This might explain the 'Gallic' Horse people and Matriarchal Queens as the last vestiges of some lost Amazon culture in Western Europe. Twin Worship (Like Gemini) in warrior cultures actually may have lead to the demise of the Amazon mater system into a pater one which pushed the Amazons more and more a field from their original home.
