Summary
"While goddess mythologies proliferate and the public devours a stream of books by artists, psychotherapists, ecologists and enthusiastic amateurs, it is remarkable that the experts in the field of prehistory have remained largely silent. Is the evidence for a Mother Goddess really lacking?" "In this book for the first time historians and archaeologists speak with a human and accessible voice about this intriguing and controversial topic. A number of significant early civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean are included: Predynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt; 'Old Europe'; Early North West Europe; 'Celtic' civilization; the Prehistoric Aegean; Malta; the Ancient Near East; Old Testament Israel; Catalhoyuk; and Archaic Greece."--Jacket
