Sacred Imagery of the Neolithic Farmers of Old Europe with Joan Marler
Joan Marler is a writer, lecturer, and executive director of the Institute of Archaeomythology. The earliest agrarian cultures of Southeastern Europe developed mature, long-lasting societies between c. 6500-3500 BCE. Their intimate relationships with the cycles of the living world and ongoing devotion to ritual activities were at the center of their remarkable sustainability. This presentation explores thematic examples of the phenomenal outpouring of sacred imagery created by the Neolithic populations of Old Europe in honor of the pioneering scholarship of Lithuanian-American archaeomythologist Marija Gimbutas.
