Sarmatian or Scythian household

I am currently a member of Ring Tribe a pre SCA period (Celtic iron age) household but card carrying members just the same. Is anyone aware of a Sarmatian or Scythian household doing the a similar thing.
(Yes I am a dancer too so my SCA handle would be Heylen)

    I don't know of any other group that does it but it's a fascinating time period. There is a show on cable called "Iron Age" where volunteers live in a reconstructed British iron age village (the site is an actual archeological site as well) and must live as closely to accurate as possible. The episode I was able to catch included their problems with foxes killing their chickens, food poisoning, and their work on items such as weaving and forging iron jewelry and items to give as gifts to a visiting iron age re-inactment group that lived in that area of England. Very interesting stuff.
