A Truly Great Silly Hat

From one of the frozen Scythian graves in the Altai, southern Siberia. One of the objects in the new Scythian show at the British Museum.

And consider this fake beard, made of human hair and found in the grave of a clean-shaven man. In fact, all the corpses in the Altai tombs were clean shaven, but the Greeks always depicted Scythians with beards. Ponder that.
