Arbroath Scythians

Scots are from Scythia , they say .  Normans probably were too.
 
"St Michael's at Hildesheim Saxony (996–1022) has six towers----two large ones over the crossings east and west, and four other towers attached to the two transepts.. Pevsner described this as a "more thorough 'metrical system'" than found in any prior Romanesque architecture."  

At Vettersfelde on German/ Poland border , a tomb has diplomatic offerings: “the Scythians not only destroyed and looted, but secure control of long trade routes by good relations with population,”  Past Horizons .(Leafloor 2015. 1.)  

" Indo-Scythians ruled Maharashtra India from 2nd century BC to 4th century AD. The first Buddhist cave monuments are at Ajanta Maharashtra of 2nd and 1st centuries B.C. "

India and SE Asia has the Saka calendar of Saka language Persian Scythians from 78 CE. 
Mughals of India designation for their own dynasty was Gurkani (Persian: گورکانیان‎, Gūrkāniyān, meaning "sons-in-law").  Mughal Babur's ancestors were oriented towards Persian rather than Turco-Mongol culture . Taj Mahal was built in 1682 with symmetrical towers like St Michaels of Saxony and the Norman Tower of London.

So the Norman Conquest was a Scythian victory by Scots who organised Scythian Saxons.
