Historians have some disagreement about whether the legendary female society of Amazons ever truly existed. Some theorize that they lived in what is now the Ukraine, some think near Syria. The historical record is spotty, but an archeological dig near the Russian steppes revealed some interesting things. Buried there were women warriors with weapons and armor, and nearby were men and children. This tribe could very well have inverted the basic gender roles that the rest of the world subscribed to, but it is unlikely that they are the Amazons of tale.
