The myth of the Amazons has lingered for centuries, but proof of their existence had always been lacking. Now, a 2,500-year-old mystery may have been solved by an American scientist. After unearthing evidence of a culture of ancient warrior women in the Russian steppes, Dr. Jeannine Davis-Kimball visited a village in Western Mongolia. There, Davis-Kimball found a young girl named Meiramgul. Davis-Kimball finds that the DNA sequences of the warrior women and those from the girl are identical.
