Abstract

The article included in the Proceedings of an international Congress held in Rome at the IsIAO, in 2005 entitled Iranian Identity in the course of History, outlines the historical and archaeological evidence of the Iranian Scythians from the Indo-European origins (Kurgan Culture, Sredni Stog, Cultura delle Catacombe etc.) to the historical and late historical time (Cimmerians, Scythians, Sauromatians, Sarmatians). To the light of a territorial approach the author tries to hypothesize the traces of the exact location of the archaeological remains related to that people, whose culture still keeps problems of interpretations and reveal to be a kind of a very archaeological puzzle. The Scythian identity to the light of the archaeological evidence still needs further investigation.
