- Born in Lithuania, Marija Gimbutas was a national heroine even before her death in 1994. A classically trained archaeologist, Dr. Gimbutas was also a linguist, mythologist and folklorist who possessed the vision of an artist and the broad understanding of a philosopher. Widely respected as a world-class expert on Baltic and Slavic prehistory and the Indo-European Bronze Age, she devoted the last thirty years of her life to exploring and interpreting the earlier Neolithic cultures of Europe. Her discovery of a goddess-based, matrilineal society that preceded the patriarchal Indo-European culture has been widely recognized as ground-breaking, initiating a new perception of European prehistory that challenges traditional assumptions about the origins of Western civilization. In this splendid collection, an international group of scholars, artists and writers articulate their deep respect for Marija Gimbutas as they acknowledge the contributions she has made to their own work.
