IPTC INFO
CaptionMany earlier archeologists had already captured the story within old stone and explained it as Gimbutas does prior to her revelations-'Man in Prehistory' Prof. Chard Univ. of Wisc. 1969 and a score of others similarly acclaimed. New dendrochronology and improved carbon-dating techniques using centuries old rare pines have now proven her time-lines; disproving the sequential-inventions concept of her opponents. What truly makes this book incredible although is not the historical revisionothers pay more to this; it is the incredible vision she gleans of their world-view through symbol-relations she has belaboured over. this book is tribute to Europe's 3500-year fruition of peaceful prosperity derived from seed of another world-view and early humanity's earliest religion concept the 70 000 years of a God who gives Birth and nurtures! ***** There are in fact just as many male phallic emblems that have been found in Asia Minor than those that could be referred to as Goddess symbols. As a matter of fact cattle images are the major emblems that see in vast profusion all over Europe -- yet no one makes the assertion that the earth was ruled by a cattle cult -- why would we do so for a "Goddess Society." **** Illustrated with nearly 2 000 symbolic artifacts--sculptures figurines temple models frescoes vases sacrificial containers--the book establishes the Goddess as the most persistent feature in the archaeological record of the ancient world. A symbol of the unity of all life in nature her power was in water and stone in cave and tomb in animals and birds in hills trees and flowers. Her main functions were life-giving death-wielding and regenerative. Gimbutas's magnum opus takes the existence of goddess-worshiping earth-centered egalitarian and nonviolent cultures out of the realm of speculation into that of documented fact.
