    Warrior's 3,900 year old suit of bone armour unearthed in Omsk

    this is the armor a Seima-Turbino warrior would have worn
    found in Omsk, nearby the Krotov culture area from where Seima-Turbino would have originated more than 3900 years ago

    I guess you'd try to aim for his neck or his eyes, because they're exposed, but you'd have to get really close.

    they found the jacket and that is what is displayed
    they didn't find any kind of helmet or other head protection, but that doesn't mean they didn't have it
    the spear and knife depicted are typical for the Seima-Turbino warriors
    I think if I meet this guy, I'll walk around the block

    Cool and very creative armor. Though but a very light armor, good against arrows and slashing blows protecting vital organs. Do they say how bones were tied together?
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.
