Abstract

Here’s the executive summary for the hasty reader: if you are looking for original research on the Sarmatians or just general information on them, you will not find much, if anything, of interest and relevance in this volume. The background of this publication is the question of an eastward expansion of the Sarmatians into regions east of the Caspian Sea in the 4 th to 2 nd centuries BC. But even that takes a while to extract from the text which is that of an almost unrevised M.A. thesis submitted in 2003 to the Department of Oriental Archaeology and Art, University of Halle-Wittenberg. The ponderous title also betrays its origin in a German academic thesis: ‘Sauromatian and Sarmatian finds northeast and east of the Caspian Sea: An inventory of previous research with particular emphasis on the weapon burials’ (German terms are translated into English throughout this review, and the German transliteration of Russian terms is replaced by the international conventions used in this journal). The stated aim is the compilation of a gazetteer of sites with Sauromatian and Sarmatian finds east of the Caspian on the basis of published research (p. 3; my emphasis) in order to provide
