New York: The Institute for Ancient Equestrian Studies
Posted on Tuesday, December 20 @ 21:02:06 MST by iljiana

Museums The IAES was begun in the spring of 1994 by Dr. David Anthony and Dorcas Brown at Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y. We are dedicated to conducting archaeological research concerning the origins of horseback riding and its impact on human societies.

Some high points have been:
* the discovery of bit wear on the teeth of horses dated to 3500 BC in Kazakstan, which pushes the beginning of horse riding back by 1500 years
* the discovery that Bronze Age chariots buried in tombs in the steppe grasslands of Russia were as old, and perhaps older than, the chariots of the ancient urban civilizations of the Near East.
* an experimental program in which horses were ridden with bits made of hemp and horsehair rope, bone and leather in order to recreate the types of bit wear that may have been produced by the earliest riders.
* survey and excavation of Bronze Age burials, settlement and herding camps on the Samara River in Russia.

The IAES is located in the Anthropology Department at Hartwick College, and is affiliated with the Institute for the History and Archaeology of the Volga in Samara, Russia.

We are a not-for-profit research organization supported by grants and contributions from private individuals. Your tax deductible contribution will advance important research and educational goals.
