Join us for an exclusive morning view of the BP exhibition Scythians: warriors of ancient Siberia on Saturday 7 October.
2,500 years ago groups of formidable warriors roamed the vast open plains of Siberia. Feared, loathed, admired – but over time forgotten Until now. This major exhibition explores the story of the Scythians – nomadic tribes and masters of mounted warfare, who flourished between 900 and 200 BC. Their encounters with the Greeks, Assyrians and Persians were written into history but for centuries all trace of their culture was lost – buried beneath the ice.
Spectator readers will enjoy a breakfast in the Great Court Restaurant with an introduction from the exhibition curator and the opportunity to enter the exhibition before it opens to the public.
