Der Todesritt der Kosaken

Since their first appearance in the 15th century, the Cossacks – the wild riders of the East – have been shrouded in myth. Their history is full of ill-fated coalitions and devastating defeats, forcing them to flee and ending in banishment.

This expedition of the “Schliemann’s Heirs” team leads us to the focal points of Cossack history in the Ukraine, Russia and the Alps of Eastern Tyrol. After decades of silence, it tries to discover the truth behind the myth by examining the evidence from recent excavations.
