Conan the Barbarian existed!

Turkish archeologists intend to prove the historical existence of the Cimmerians, one of Europe’s most ancient peoples. The legendary Conan the Barbarian was one of the Cimmerians, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1982 Hollywood movie Conan the Barbarian.

Scientists still debate the existence of the land of Cimmerians . There are references to the ancient mystical country in the works by Homer and Herodotus, and in the Assyrian cuneiform tables excavated in Mesopotamia . According to the tables, the Cimmerians originated in Asia Minor in the 8th century B.C.

According to the works by Stephan of Byzantine, the Cimmerian settlements were located for 100 years in Antandrosis, an ancient town lying in the northwestern part of present-day Turkey .

Archeologists hope to find evidence to prove the existence of the Cimmerians during the upcoming excavation. In the future, Antandorsis may become the second Ephesus in terms of historical significance if an archeological expedition strikes it rich, Travel.ru reports.
