About this session

Marija Gimbutas' research was foundational in creating the field of archaeomythology. This panel focuses on perspectives of that field as we revisit concepts of philosophy in light of discoveries in Old Europe, examine a hypothesis for the study of religion in Minoan Crete, consider the Old European roots of religion in Greece and the early Christian Church, and explore ways in which Old European archaeology finds parallels with other world cultures.
