Numerous myths and legends grew up around women or tribes of women in ancient times, who either fought alongside or alone against men. The Greeks and Romans called some of these Amazons. The Scythian word for these women is Oiorpata, meaning "to kill man."Not until the 20th century did the archaeological evidence actually prove the existence of thse fearsome women and, thus, historians and scholars have largely dismissed the ancient accounts as being purely mythological.However, new excavations at Pokrovka on the Kazakh steppes along the Kazakhstan and Russian border have yielded evidence to the contrary -- that women among the Sauromatian and Early Sarmatian (Early Nomad) tribes were warriors. Their kurgans (burial mounds) are found in the southern Ural steppes.Offering included in their burials that the nomads needed for their journey to the next world included ordinary household objects, religious and cultic items, horse trappings, and weaponry for both men and women alike.The populations in this region were Indo-Europoids and spoke an Indo-Iranian language. A skull of one such women was reconstructed. At this early date there is no Mongoloid admixture among the Sauromantians and Sarmatians at Pokrovka.

"We are riders; our business is with the bow and the spear, and we know nothing of women's work."
-- Herodotus IV, 114

Did you know that according to Herodotus and other writers, a Sarmatian girl must remain virgin and cannot marry until she has killed a man in battle? Concerning this aspect, there are contradictory versions, as some authors assert that they were engaged as warriors and performed masculine roles as long as they were unmarried, but after the wedding they carried out a normal womanly family life. Other writers witness that Sarmatian women have been seen engaged in hunting and war together with their husbands and dressed like them. Both versions may be true, as they may regard different tribes, clans or social classes having their own rules.

At present, similar customs exist among the Kazaks, whose children of both genders are trained in horseback riding since very young age.

"Magnum crimen: pola vijeka klerikalizma u Hrvatskoj" (i.e. Major accusation: Half a century of clericalism in Croatia) is a book first published in Zagreb in 1948. The book was written by a Croatian Roman Catholic priest, Dr. Viktor Novak (1889 - 1977), who was also a professor at Belgrade and Zagreb Universities, and the member of the Yugoslav Academy Science and Arts.[1]. In this book, Novak wrote about (Roman Catholic) clericalism in Croatia from the beginning of the 20th century to the end of World War II.

The Vatican Curia placed the book on their list of banned books, the "Index librorum prohibitorum", and said that Novak was an enemy of the Catholic Church.

Da li ste znali da se Petrovaradinska tvrdjava nalazi u Novom Sadu, Srbiji, u mestu Petrovaradin na obali Dunava i obroncima Fruske gore?
Kamen temeljac je polozio austrijski princ Kroj. Izgradnja tvrdjave, po projektu francuskog vojnog arhitekte Sebastijana Vobana, trajala je punih 88 godina, sve do 1780. Izgradnju su vodili austrijski vojni arhitekti. Tvrdjava je izgradjena na 112 hektara, na uzvisenju koje dominira okolinom. Bila je neosvojiva za ondasnju ratnu tehniku i vec tada je dobila naziv Gibraltar na Dunavu. Kao iskljucivo vojni objekat, Petrovaradinska tvrdjava sluzila je sve do 1948. godine. Pod zastitu drzave stavljena je 1951. godine, od kada predstavlja kulturni i turisticki objekat. Pored muzeja, arhiva i niza umetnickih ateljea, poslednjih godina na Petrovaradinskoj tvrdjavi odrzava se muzicki festival "Exit".

"Inace,poslije Prvog svjetskog rata u Jugoslaviju je stiglo oko 44.000
Rusa,što vojnika,što civila. Polovica od toga krenula je na Zapad, a polovica
je ostala. Njihove jedinice u Jugoslaviji upotrebljavane su za gradnju zeljeznickih
pruga i cesta, te za raspored na albanskoj i madjarskoj granici,što
je pomoglo slamanju pobuna u tim drzavama. Ruski izvrsni univerzitetski
profesori rasporedjeni su po fakultetima u Beogradu i Zagrebu, te po srednjim
školama. Opera u Beogradu dobila je balet sastavljen iskljucivo od ruskog
osoblja. Zaposleno je i mnogo oficira u jugo-vojsci, te glumaca u glavnim
centrima. Moze se reci da je ruska emigracija bila znacajan faktor u intelektualnom
razvoju zemlje koja im je ukazivala gostoprimstvo."
