Goddesses of bone Prehistoric Balkans.

Lost Goddesses Writing Found
by Dean Adams Curtis

Was prehistoric Europe a place of peace for thousands of years? We've just excavated amazing words from the last writings of a renowned archaeologist whose life's work addressed that question. We reveal the words here for the first time on the web, quoted exactly as they were discovered:

"By 4500 BC, the European continent hosted a flourishing group of Goddess worshipping cultures. Over the preceding two millennia, from about 6500 BC to 4500 BC, these cultures had undergone a peaceful evolution, and by the end of this time achieved what could properly be called a Golden Age of Old European civilization. They produced arts and crafts of remarkable quality. Communities achieved populations of many thousands and were laid out in a planned manner. Towns were located at consistently even distances from each other, with larger cities acting as religious and trade centers."


IN SHORT: The paragraph above reveals the work of an archaeologist whose entire career had been spent digging into warrior cultures in ancient Europe. Then, the archaeologist dug deeper and discovered consistently peaceful cultures that had thrived for thousands of years. Thus, these assertions are backed by a lifetime of archaeological excavation and analysis.

She was dug from Earth at the famous 9000 year old settlement, Çatalhöyük, in Turkey, one of the earliest known cities.
Readers will find many references to the site throughout this site, including the latest Çatalhöyük goddess figurines excavated.

So what happened?

Marija Gimbutas writes about the invasion into Old Europe of a culture that was its antithesis, the "Kurgan" Culture, named after the style of the burial mounds of their culture's chieftans.

“The Old European and the Kurgan cultures were completely opposite," Marija explains. She then examines how the two cultures were opposites.

Old Europe: sedentary-horticultural, dwelling in large agglomerations

Kurgan: mobile, living in small villages

Old Europe: matrilinear, egalitarian, peaceful

Kurgan: patriarchal, ranked, and warlike

"The respective ideologies produced different sets of gods and symbols, Marija continued."

Old European ideology: focused on the eternal aspects of birth, death, and regeneration, symbolized by a goddess, no emphasis on dangerous weapons

Kurgan ideology (like all historically-known Indo-Europeans): glorified the sharp blade


Gimbutas concludes, “The domesticated horse, it seems, was the prime cause, as well as the means, for the emergence of power from the wooded steppe zone north of the Caspian and the Black Seas."
