As a Nirmalite both in ( School and College),my teachers have fine tuned me with good life skills and language skills to lead my life with high personal and Professional Front .I have proved myself strong and self defensive in various situations of my life overcoming fears and shortcomings.

I remember my Alma Mater as my nurturer, my haven, a place I called my own for 15 years. which even after so many of its existence still stands rock-solid to its motto, ‘Knowledge Purifies” “Charity Enhances”. Every minute activity is still vividly sketched in my memory. My sincere gratitude to the Institution for providing me a fantastic opportunity to serve student community..

  • I thank each staff member for making my college life memorable. I ammuch morecherished.

Name: W Helen Bobby Batch: 1994-1997 Department: Botany

  • Think of the most colorful days of my life…
  • Think of the most nourishing days of my life…
  • Think of the most enabling days of my life…
  • I stood in the 1st and 2nd year college elections, participated in every possible drama, dance, interdepartmental and inter-collegiate event. I also aced academics, toping university in PG. I learnt how to visualize creative ideas, how to collaborate with professors for projects, how to negotiate with peers to pitch in for assignments and how to resolve conflicts. As young adults, Nirmala College provided a platform to learn academics, extra-curricular activities and discover ourselves
  • Today, in professional life, I use all these learnt skills, on a daily basis. Truly, college life is a microcosm of professional and personal life.
  • I wish Nirmala College a long and successful presence in the lives of young women in Coimbatore.
  • Imagine building castles in the air and seeing them come to pass!
  • Nirmala was my dream come true! Having been an introvert, feeling inadequate, doubting my abilities, Nirmala broke the shackles and helped me to evolve into the best version of myself.
  • Nirmala provided a level playing field to put my abilities to the test. I tried my hands at everything that caught my eye. I still vividly remember spending hours at the parade ground perfecting every drill, discovering my passion for writing, dancing and running. Nirmala helped me realise that I cannot be put into a box and still pursue my interests with all my heart. It gave me the direction that I needed in life. I carry forward all the values that Nirmala inculcated wherever I go.
  • If I get one wish, I would want to revisit my 3 years I spent at Nirmala College! The classrooms, friends, professors who left a lasting impact are the moments that fills my heart with joy!
  • To all that I am today, I owe it to Nirmala, my alma mater!

Share your experience with others

Can we change the course in the same college after writing our 1st semester.

The answer depends upon the vacancy of seats in the college, for example, most autonomous colleges, intake 240 students from ECE branch, so if the number is filled, you cannot enter that course, these rules on which how many people can be intaked depends on AICTE rules and cannot be changed, however if you have good merit and the branch has available seats, you can opt for other branches.

can we change the course after writing first semestet

You can't change your branch after 1st semester. You can do it after completion of 1st year. You can do it if you score above 8.5-8.9 CGPA.  This value is different for different board but it ranges between this only. So after your 1st year if your CGPA is in this range then you can change your branch for sure in your college.

1st year subjects are easy and you get mostly guided by the faculties. if you put your efforts and do good in your internal,assignments,quizes and tests and good performance in lab evaluation and atlast you write your semester with quality answers then you will get near to 9 SGPA. You can get many materials from online also. if still you understand then you can ask your teachers too. They will help you to know.

Hope it helps!

FRANCISCAN MISSIONARIES OF MARY (F. M. M.)

franciscan sisters of the presentation of mary coimbatore

Helen de Chappotin, born on 21st May, 1839, had a deep yearning right from her very childhood to commit herself totally to the service of the Lord. She joined the Poor Clares in 1860 but unfortunately her not so commendable health made her ineligible. After some time her aspirations could be fulfilled when she was taken into the Society of Marie Reparatrixin in 1864. In 1866 Helen was sent to Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu for the mission. There she made her first profession, assuming the name Mary of the Passion and subsequently was appointed Superior at Tuticorin.

Her innate simplicity and ardent commitment to the cause raised her to the position of Provincial in 1867. The Houses at Trichy, Madurai and Tuticorin were all managed by her very well and being far-sighted and daring, she could reach out to the poor by various means according to the needs of the time and place. 

The office of the Superior was far from a bed of roses for the Provincial; On the contrary, it was one of thorny branches! Mary of the Passion had real passion for commitment and endeavour and the courage of conviction to carry out the tasks she found duty bound as part of her mission to fulfil. These traits or gifts viewed through coloured glasses were obviously misread and misinterpreted, resulting in wrong signals reaching Rome. To make a long story short, Mary of the Passion was unceremoniously and abruptly removed from Provincialship without any justifiable procedures like intimation and enquiry or 'show cause notice' practised in lay associations and nay, even in atheistic organisations!

The inequitable, impulsive and impudent imposition of punitory measures in no way blew out the flame of her love for and services in the name of God. Having been through bitter experiences of struggle and agony, thirty of the Sisters of the Society of Marie Reparatraxin came away from the Congregation. Together with them, Mary of the Passion formed and set in motion a new Order.

Wth proper guidance from Rome, this severed shoot sprang up into a new Congregation in the cool climate of Ooty. That is how the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary founded by Mother Mary came into existence. Started as a small and slender shoot on January 6, 1887, it grew up into an international Community with Sisters working all over the world, engaged in ministries as per the needs of the places.

Thus having glanced at the inception of the Congregation, we can now turn to that time in the Diocese when the Community put up her appearence. At Cheriakadavu of those days lived Mr. Edward and his wife Mrs. Eliswa of Kattiparambu family. The childless pair of comfortable means had for their residence a two storeyed building. He had approached the Bishop of Cochin and expressed his desire to donate his house and properties to the diocese to start some convent.

With much difficulty the bishop had sought out a native religious Congregation and brought its Sisters there. A day had been fixed for the blessing of the convent and chapel and inauguration of the convent. There was no road to Kattiparambu and the prelate had to be brought from the Bishp´s House. Arrangements had been made to fetch him in a palanquin. Then came the disqieting and disheartening news that the bishop was not going to inaugurate the Convent. It gave Mr. Edward a stroke and he died then and there. The Sisters who had come to start the convent finally left the place.

It was then that H.E., Dom Jose Bento Martin Rebeiro, the 29th Bishop of Cochin under the Portuguese Padroado adminstration, invited the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary to open a House here. He succeeded in getting them from Coimbatore diocese and two missionaries, Mother Michael and Mother Alberta, arrived in Cochin. The property gifted to the bishop by the Edward Kattiparambu family was right there to welcome them.

The double storey building at Kattiprambu had earlier been converted to a convent by His Excellency, Msgr. Rebeiro. The bishop had remodelled the house with the cherished hope that it might form a nucleus of missionary activities and above all, a source of missionary vocations. Already five aspirants to religious life had gathered there and had been living in community when the first F.M.M Sisters, Mother Michael and Mother Alberta came to Kattipparambu. They reached the place on August 6, 1915 in a country canoe and started St. Elizabeth's Conent. Thus they were the ones chosen to nurse, nourish and nurture the infant Community of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary.

The five girls received their mothers with great eagerness, enthusiasm and love and served them their first meal on that happy evening. This was to mark the growth of a beautiful family life into the warm aura of which was to be drawn later many a maiden to cherish and relish consecrated life in the service of the Lord. The next day, 7th August, the first Mass was celebrated in their little Convent. Six days later two Sisters joined them and from 15th onwards they had the privilege of having daily adoration. On August 22, 1915, the Convent of St. Elizabeth of Portugal was consecrated by His Excellency, Msgr. Rebeiro, Bishop of Cochin.

Attached to the house of Mr. Edward, a chapel facing east had been built earlier. Later on two other FMM Sisters, Mother Sebastina and Mother Perfecta, came there on August 15 and two more, Mother Jermane and Mother Angel, joined them four days later. They also received five girls as candidates to join their Congregation. With the arrival of more Sisters, they started perpetual adoration to the Blessed Sacrament in the convent which had warm response by way of participation by the locals. 

The Sisters started an embroidery and tailoring centre with five girls on September 1, the same year. This centre slowly grew up to make a beautiful embroidery work centre where training is given simultaneously to 375 young girls. The scheme is to help the girls acquire some empowerment in their future family life. Later on a workroom was erected and added to the centre in 1965. 

The year 1916 is an important one in the history of the Convent as well as of the place Kattipparambu. After living and studying among the people of the locality for nearly an year, the Community found the basic need of the people and place was a school. The village was comprised of landless labourers, fisher folk and landlords, where the landlords were but just a handful. These landlords had their children in boarding schools elsewhere but the poor could not dream of any access even to primary education. So the Sisters started a school which was blessed on May 14, 1916. Classes began the very next day with eighteen pupils under the heavenly patronage of St. Joseph. 

Through the pupils of the school the Community could reach out to the families and build up closer relationship. Regular recurrence of sea erosion during the monsoon season used to be a threat to the people of the locality. Because of this the people started the Eucharistic procession to the sea shore and bishop Jose Bento Martin Rebeiro used to conduct the procession. 

In June 1962, the school was upgraded with 34 pupils and the Government of Kerala granted recognition to the institution. To this primary school was added a new building in 1966. Thus the humble beginning the Franciscan Sisters of the Missionaries of Mary made way back in 1916 with just eighteen children gradually grew up to a big institution. Now the school boasts of a strength of almost one thousand in twenty two divisions with twenty seven teachers and remains as the pride of the place. 

The Sisters are engaged in teaching catechism in he neighbouring parishes within eight kilometres. The catechetical mission of Kari which can be reached only by country canoes across the river is in full swing. In order to intensify their spiritual life, the Franciscan Third Order was started in 1917 which still continues in great fervour. Now the Sisters are teaching Catechism at regular Sunday classes.

The first group of Novices had their religious habit on March 19, 1919 and in February 1920 they made their first profession. When the number of Sisters increased, Bishop Martin Rebeiro opened a second House for the F.M.M. Sisters in the Diocese on April 5, 1923 at Lourdupuram, Thiruvananthapuram. A third House was instituted at Thoppumpady in May 1926 and yet another, St. Francis Xavier's Convent, Kaloor was establsihed later. Today in Kerala alone there are nine Convents for the Congregation of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary. 

The Superior General from Rome visited the Kattipparambu Convent in 1964. The new church was blessed in December 1967 by the then Bishop of Cochin, Dr. Alexander Edezhath. From January 28, 1968 onwards a permanent chaplain was also appointed there. After arranging a private chapel for the Sisters in the Convent itself, the church at Kattipparambu was elevated as a parish church under the patronage of St. Francis of Assisi on June 22, 1980 by Bishop Dr. Joseph Kureethara. 

A businessman of Mattancherry, a Gujarati, found a large picture among the goods he had imported and he planned to place it on the wall. One of his workers, one Mr. Sauro Oliparambil from Thoppumpady found that it was a picture of Our Lady, Mother of God, the original of which by the famous painter, Raffaelo, is preserved in an art gallery in Milan, Italy. Mr. Sauro managed to bring the picture to his house and slowly people started coming in to pray before the picture. Number of devotees and the amount of votive offerings increased.

The matter was brought to the attention of the Bishop of Cochin, H.E., Dom Joao Gomez Ferreire, who ordered Mr. Sauro to place the picture for public worship which he refused. His relatives also claimed ownership of the picture and finally the Bishop had to threaten them with excommunication. The picture, now called "Our Lady of Miracles", was thus brought to a small shrine at Thoppumpady on February 4, 1891. Before long devotees to Our Lady of Miracles increased so much that it was found necessary that a more spacious edifice be built. Consequently, on November 11, 1894, the foundation stone for a large church was laid. In course of time Thoppumpady became a famous pilgrimage centre of the Diocese of Cochin. 

Bishop Jose Bento Martin Rebeiro who brought the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary to Kattipparambu and Lourdupuram thought that a convent would be a great help at this Marian centre. He duly set to work for the establishment of a convent of the same Order and on May 31, 1926 he could accomplish it with the institution of one with six Sisters. The Franciscan Missionaries of Mary came to Palluruthy to open a small convent in what is now the sacristy of Our Lady of Miracle's Church. 

The place was bleak, monsoon was heavy, rain swept in from all sides but the Sisters were jubilant in their new abode; for, they had come with a burning zeal to serve God's children. In the same year the Sisters started a needle work centre there. The convent buildings were constructed in the year 1931 and Rev. Fr. Sequeira was appointed as the first chaplain. There was a primary school at Thoppumpady, called Pope Leo XIII School which was housed in the convent building. At the establishment of the Convent, the school was shifted to the verandah of St. Sebastian's Church, Palluruthy, as independent from Santa Cruz School. Rev. Fr. Fernandez later on raised it as a High School.

Their immediate aim was to cater to the needs of the poor and the sick of the locality. A needle work centre was started on a verandah where young girls could come along to learn and then earn a decent living in good surroundings. Immediately a dispensary was opened for the needy and the sick and since then benefits and blessings began to spread around Palluruthy.

To give the girls a chance to secure a sound education in a safe environment, a primary school was opened in June 1941. The cry of the people in the locality was responded to when it was up-graded to a High School in 1949 and subsequently classes on Teachers' Training Course were started. The chapel was renovated. A cutting and tailoring centre was started to provide a career to young girls. They started a hostel as well for the young working girls in order to provide them healthy and safe surroundings.

Thus, today the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary work in various fields such as education (L.P.S., H.S., and T.T.C.) social welfare (social training centre, working women's, family apostolate), Catechetics (teaching Catechetics, family apostolate), Secular Franciscan Order, F.B.A. etc. and extend the spirit of Christian life among the people of God.

Stella Baltazar, FMM

franciscan sisters of the presentation of mary coimbatore

Stella Baltazar is a member of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary (FMM).  Born in 1952,  she hails from the southernmost tip of India. Having earned her master’s degree in Sociology and Theology from the University of Mysore, Stella’s real learning comes from her involvement with the youth as well as women, especially widows. Baltazar had wide mission experience in the empowerment of women as women Development Officer at Coimbatore Diocese where in three years she helped establish 52 women’s associations in the diocese, and felt the power of women from the grassroots and their yearning for liberation from poverty, male domination and cultural oppression. This experience led Stella to seek ways to educate, motivate and mobilize women to emerge with self determination and take collective action for change. It was an experience that empowered her to reflect theologically and develop perspectives on Feminist Theology.  

She was then invited by Caritas India to work at the national level with 64 dioceses in 1999 for four years, giving her enormous possibility to move around and learn within India and abroad,  while creating networks of women’s organizations at the State level.  She also served as consultant to Caritas Switzerland, a Member of Indian Theological Association, as well as  president of EATWOT India. She has presented papers at theological as well as justice and peace forums.

Passionate about empowering women, especially widows, she is involved in inter-faith collaboration and also works on ecological concerns. She has moderated provincial chapters of several congregations and served at different levels of leadership in her own, and is presently the provincial of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, Ootacamund Province, Tamil Nadu, India.

“My belief is ‘Every event of our life is sent by God for a very special purpose’ as said by our Foundress Mother Mary of the Passion and I am growing in the realization of that purpose. Women were my real life inspiration starting with my own mother.”

Our Foundress, Blessed Anne Marie Rivier…. 

In 1768, Marie Rivier was born in Montpezat, France.  A bad fall left her crippled.  Her mother carried her frequently to the statue of the Pieta (Our Lady of Mercy) in a nearby chapel.  Marie believed: “The Blessed Virgin will cure me and I shall gather little ones to tell them to love her!”  Four years later, Marie was healed!

These years of schooling at the feet of the statue of Mary marked Marie’s life forever.  God’s merciful love filled her heart. Thereafter, she gathered children for “catechism,” and befriended the poor.   By the age of 18, Marie devoted herself entirely to the evangelization and the care of the poor.

Thus, the vocation and the mission of Marie Rivier were rooted in the contemplation of Our Lady of Mercy (Pieta) and found their complete fulfillment in the two mysteries of the Presentation of Jesus and Mary.  Vocation and mission were incarnated in a deep interior life and an ardent zeal to make Jesus Christ known and loved.  The prolonged meditation of these mysteries reproduced in her the attitudes that were intensely lived by Jesus and Mary: adoration, offering and compassion.

S. April Mireau’s Reflection on Marie Rivier 

Created by Sharon Leyne 

Our Beginnings…

During the tumultuous times of the French Revolution where any religious action was considered suspicious, risking death and persecution, Marie founded the Congregation of the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary.   On November 21 st , 1796 on the Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple, Marie and four companions consecrated themselves to God.

Our Growth…

The new community grew quickly despite great poverty.  Through prayer, deep faith and love; they obtained everything from God through the intercession of the Virgin Mary.  There was nothing to eat, but wheat multiplied and fresh oil appeared!   Despite poor health, physical disability and political danger, Marie was unwavering in her mission: “To make Jesus Christ known and loved.”  Marie Rivier died on February 3 rd , 1838.  Her boundless zeal led Pope Pius IX to call her The Woman Apostle.  Marie Rivier, “a prophet of our time,” was beatified by Pope John Paul II on May 23 rd , 1982.

She had predicted: “My daughters will sail the oceans!” This prediction came true in 1853 when the sisters arrived in St. Hyacinthe, Québec.  Today, the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary serve in 19 countries around the world.

The sisters have been serving in Western Canada the “Rivier way” since 1903.  In the next century more than twenty missions were opened, with the majority of the sisters teaching the faith in schools.   Today, we have fewer sisters teaching in the schools.  However, we are still called to teach the faith in parishes, on the First Nations reserves, as health professionals, counsellors, spiritual directors, in inner city ministry, with immigrants and wherever there is need to make Jesus Christ known and loved.

Marie Rivier’s famous Quotes…

“Speaking of God is happiness for me!” Marie Rivier

“I feel such zeal to work for the glory of God.”

“I expect everything from prayer.”

“We were nothing, we had nothing, we could do nothing.  And after that, could you doubt that it was God, who led things to the point where you see them today, who founded, increased and strengthened this community?”

Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Our Beginnings The Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary were founded in Ireland in 1775 by Nano Nagle. She felt she was called by God to bring the light of faith to the poor children of Cork.  The Penal Laws of the time forbade any form of Catholic instruction in Ireland, but Nano Nagle was willing to risk imprisonment and disgrace for the sake of the Gospel. Visiting the sick and homebound by night along Cork’s cobbled streets, she became known as the “Lady With the Lantern”. In time she gathered other women to form a new society of women religious dedicated to the service of the poor. Nano Nagle’s small band of women, originally named the Society of Charitable Instruction of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, later became known as the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

New York City On September 8, 1874, 12 Presentation Sisters from Ireland arrived on the shores of New York City. They came at the invitation of Father Arthur Donnelly to staff St. Michael's School on the West Side of New York City. On Monday, September 28, 1874, the sisters greeted 600 children who were anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Irish sisters who crossed the ocean to teach them. Ten years after the arrival of the sisters in New York, Saint Michael's Parish purchased Frost Farms in Staten Island as a permanent vacation house for the sisters. The summer home for the children was converted into a permanent orphanage for the children in St. Michael's Parish. The sisters then had to split as sisters were needed to staff the orphanage and the other sisters had to return to teaching in the school. On August 10, 1884, the archdiocese declared that some sisters needed to remain in Staten Island and care for the growing concerns of the orphanage. Mother Joseph Hickey appointed Sister Magdalene Keating superior of the small group that remained on Staten Island. This was a very short arrangement as a request for Presentation Sisters to staff St. Bernard's School in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, arrived at Staten Island. Mother Magdalene Keating accepted the new foundation and left with a few sisters and postulants to take up the challenge. Sister Theresa Reynolds was then appointed superior of the Staten Island community. On May 1, 1890, the New York City community became an independent congregation. The spread of the sisters on the East Coast was a blessing as the three congregants were growing with new members arriving every year. In 1921, Presentation Sisters from St. Michael's Convent purchased property in Newburgh, New York. With time, this site became the motherhouse for the Sisters of the Presentation. Over time the congregation opened missions in New Jersey, Queens, New York City and the Bronx. As the congregation spread, the ministries of the sisters widened beyond education of children to pastoral care, health care and social service. In 1991 the congregation began the canonical process of unity. The Newburgh, New York, congregation and the Fitchburg, Massachusetts, congregation were reuniting and becoming one. After six years of work, the unity of the two congregations took place in July 1997 and the name remained the Sisters of the Presentation.

Out of the Centre

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

franciscan sisters of the presentation of mary coimbatore

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.  

franciscan sisters of the presentation of mary coimbatore

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

franciscan sisters of the presentation of mary coimbatore

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

franciscan sisters of the presentation of mary coimbatore

Under the reign of Tsar Alexis the cathedral was decorated with frescoes by Stepan Ryazanets, some of which remain today. Tsar Alexis also presented the cathedral with a five-tier iconostasis, the top row of icons have been preserved.

Tsaritsa's Chambers

franciscan sisters of the presentation of mary coimbatore

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is located between the Tsaritsa's Chambers of the left and the Palace of Tsar Alexis on the right.

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era. It was built especially for Tsar Alexis who often visited the monastery on religious pilgrimages. Its most striking feature is its pretty row of nine chimney spouts which resemble towers.

The Unique Burial of a Child of Early Scythian Time at the Cemetery of Saryg-Bulun (Tuva)

<< Previous page

Pages:  379-406

In 1988, the Tuvan Archaeological Expedition (led by M. E. Kilunovskaya and V. A. Semenov) discovered a unique burial of the early Iron Age at Saryg-Bulun in Central Tuva. There are two burial mounds of the Aldy-Bel culture dated by 7th century BC. Within the barrows, which adjoined one another, forming a figure-of-eight, there were discovered 7 burials, from which a representative collection of artifacts was recovered. Burial 5 was the most unique, it was found in a coffin made of a larch trunk, with a tightly closed lid. Due to the preservative properties of larch and lack of air access, the coffin contained a well-preserved mummy of a child with an accompanying set of grave goods. The interred individual retained the skin on his face and had a leather headdress painted with red pigment and a coat, sewn from jerboa fur. The coat was belted with a leather belt with bronze ornaments and buckles. Besides that, a leather quiver with arrows with the shafts decorated with painted ornaments, fully preserved battle pick and a bow were buried in the coffin. Unexpectedly, the full-genomic analysis, showed that the individual was female. This fact opens a new aspect in the study of the social history of the Scythian society and perhaps brings us back to the myth of the Amazons, discussed by Herodotus. Of course, this discovery is unique in its preservation for the Scythian culture of Tuva and requires careful study and conservation.
