Abstract

This article reviews two recent works on ethnic origins. (I) Kuz'mina's [Whence Came the Indo-Aryans?] discusses the origins of the Indo-Aryans, specifically, and the Indo-Iranians, in general. Her work is based on "ethno-diagnostics," the identification of specific material cultural features with particular ethnic groups. (II) Ivantchik's Les Cimmériens au Proche-Orient analyzes the origins of the Cimmerians and their history in the Near East. The author does not take adequate note of Kuz'mina's results.
