Pioneering in archaeomythology-the interdisciplinary field based on archaeology, comparative mythologv. and folklore -Gimbutas unequivically establishes the existence of a Goddess religion in Neolithic Europe with its roots in the Paleolithic. Through the interpretation of images and symbols, she reveals the basic worldview of these ancient European matriarchal cultures and decodes the symbolic language that has remained embedded in our civilization - a language now being restored bv folklorists, feminists, ecologists, and pacifists. This most complete rendering of our nature - embracing European ancestors resurrects a lost world that is the authentic genesis of our Western heritage. Here is a "pictorial script" of the prehistoric Goddess religion that clearly demonstrates how our ancestors lived a life united with nature. As Joseph Campbell concludes in his foreword, "The message here is of an actual age of harmony and peace in accord with the creative energies of nature which anteceded the six thousand years of what James Joyce has termed the 'nightmare' from which it is time for this planet to wake." Illustrated with nearly 2000 symbolic artifacts -sculptures, figurines, temple models, frescoes, vases, sacrificia. Seller Inventory # 1069268
