The nurturing Earth Goddess, the Great Mother worshipped at the dawn of civilizationhistorical fact or consoling fiction?

While Goddess mythologies proliferate and the public devours books by artists, psychotherapists, and enthusiastic amateurs, it is remarkable that those in the field of prehistory have remained largely silent. Did Goddess worship really exist? What actually remains from the earliest cultures, and what can it tell us? What can we learn about the early stages of human religion from the study of prehistoric carvings, pictures, pottery, figurines, and temples?
In "Ancient Goddesses," historians and archaeologists write accessibly about this intriguing and controversial topic for the first time. Considering a number of significant early civilizationsPredynastic and Early Dynastic Egypt; Old Europe; Early North West Europe; Celtic civilization; the Prehistoric Aegean; Malta; the Ancient Near East; Old Testament Israel; Catalhoyuk; and Archaic Greecethese experts review the most recent evidence so that readers can make up their own minds.
