Exhibition: Amazons – Mysterious Warriors

SPEYER, GERMANY: For the past three millennia, the exploits of the Amazon tribe have become the stuff of legend. These implacable female warriors are supposed to have battled before Troy and laid siege to Athens. To this day, scholars have searched the world for evidence of their true nature. In this unique international historical and cultural exhibition with the title Amazons – Mysterious Warriors the Historical Museum of the Palatinate seeks to cast some light on the Amazons in all their facets from antiquity to the present day.
