New Grave Find and Iranian Nomad Social Media Group

A new group of Sarmatian kurgans has been found with at least 29 graves! They opened one up and found a double burial of what they are assuming to be a married couple.

And since my dissertation struggles have meant I've avoided spending time doing SCA stuff, Holly Herda over at Sarmatian in the USA was kind enough to set up that Iranian nomad social media group I talked about a while back. I got an equal number of votes for Facebook and Google Groups. Since there's already a good and relevant group on Facebook, Mongols and Russians and Scythians, Oh my!, we went with Google. She found out that Google is planning to phase out Google Groups, unfortunately, so SCA Iranian Steppe Nomads is a Google+ community.


  1. The G+ communities are pretty good, too; I don't think you'll miss the groups terribly once you've gotten used to the G+ Community. Although you may want to consider making it a private group or have a moderator check once a week to clear out spam names (usually companies) from the list if you make it public.

  2. She already has it set to private. :)

  3. I know this is an old post now, but as someone who's been trying to up the standards of their Scythian SCA game, I was wondering if the group's still active and accepting any new members. Thanks!
