About the test
The full test includes six warrior women. The first four are dated to the Iron Age and were part of the culture we refer to as the Amazons—female warriors and hunters, who surpassed men in archery, horseback riding, and combat. Tales of the Amazons go back as far as the 7th century BC. Named slayers of men by Herodotus, Amazons became a matter of folklore and mythology. It was said that they removed the right breast (hence Amazon, breastless in Greek) to perfect their archery skills and interacted with males only for reproduction purposes, with the male infants returned to their fathers and the female infants retained. Evidence for the existence of Amazons is now widespread from Mongolia to Eastern Europe. This test includes two noble Sarmatian warriors found with their typical armory, swords, arrowheads, and hooks, as well as horse bridles and a hoard of bronze and gold jewelry in East Kazakhstan and two women from Pokrovka and Arzan (Russia).
The last warrior woman is a Viking. In the era where Viking women were farmers, traders, landowners, and merchants, our test includes the first-ever female Viking warrior (8th-10th centuries AD) that joined the ranks of Viking warriors. She was born to a Swedish family of traders, artisans, and warriors. She climbed the ranks to become a high-ranking warrior, skilled with swords, spears, axes, and even knives and was found with her beloved horses.
The final warrior woman was a medieval Finnish sword master from the Germanic Age (550 AD) who was buried with a fashionable cape, beautiful jewelry, and a terrible secret. The artifacts found in her grave are associated with the Crusade period in Finland.
Overall, the test includes six European and Asian warrior women who lived between 800 BC to 1050 AD and provides a detailed historical, archeological, and paleogenetic background of their lives. It describes their relationships with other ancient Europeans and the circumstances of their lives and health. A detailed profile is available for every woman. Find out now how related you are to these ancient women warriors.
