It’s the summer of 2018 and Dr. Zainolla S. Samashev is back in the remote mountains of eastern Kazakhstan for his annual dig. Since 1998 he’s been excavating kurgans, heaps of stone and earth associated with burials dating back more than 2,500 years. Samashev and his team have made some stunning discoveries over the years, but what they find this summer is utterly astonishing.
