    The 'Scythians: Warriors of Ancient Siberia' exhibition was jointly organized by the British Museum and St. Petersburg’s State Hermitage Museum. Photo: A gold clothing applique showing two warriors facing backs.

    More than 850 exhibits from Russia’s Hermitage Museum collection were delivered to London to share the story of the Scythians, powerful nomadic tribes from Siberia.

    Most of the items have never left Russia before. Now they are all set for a colossal exposition at the British Museum.
