Some Info on The Huns

Post  Taylor Lee on Sun May 04, 2014 12:38 pm

The Huns were a nomadic people or peoples, who are known to have lived in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia between the 1st century AD and the 7th century. They were first reported living east of the Volga River, in an area that was part of Scythia at the time; the Huns' arrival is associated with the migration westward of a Scythian people, the Alans. They were first mentioned as Hunnoi by Tacitus. In 91 AD, the Huns were said to be living near the Caspian Sea and by about 150 AD had migrated southeast into the Caucasus. By 370 AD, the Huns had established a vast, if short-lived, Hunnic Empire in Europe.

They were feared by many people due to their very good aim from large distances and always being on horseback. They were known to eat, sleep and go to battle on their horses.
