Join an archaeologist as we discuss women in an array of aspects across the Mediterranean in the Bronze Age. From daily life, to fashion, to careers and more, we'll touch on the lives of Nefertiti and Hatshepsut (Egyptian Queens), Puduhepa (Hittite Queen), Enheduana (Akkadian High priestess- 1st poet in the world), just to name a few.

One of the most enthralling periods in human history, the Bronze Age (3200-1200BCE) saw the birth and evolution of the first advanced civilizations in the Mediterranean and the Near East. The construction of pyramids, palaces, citadels, cities, and harbors in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and Greece are evidence of a connected and globalized world. While women contributed significantly to the rise of these civilizations, they are conspicuously absent from the historical narratives. Relegated to footnotes for scandalous behavior or unprecedented accomplishment, women predominantly remained faceless and anonymous.

In this seminar, we will take a close look at archaeological evidence to discover a vibrant world of hard-working farm girls, devoted wives, nurturing mothers, accomplished professionals, powerful priestesses, and formidable queens who governed in their own right. We will uncover the details of these women's lives, from makeup and birth control to marriage and divorce, from weaving textiles to safekeeping the temple. These are the stories of (wo)mankind during the awe-inspiring Bronze Age world.

Led by an expert on prehistoric archaeology, Dimitra Pilarinou, this interactive seminar will examine the daily life of women in the Bronze Age throughout the Mediterranean. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of the cultures of prehistory and the impactful role women played in their creation.

Dimitra Pilarinou is a Greek archaeologist and Licensed Tour Guide with a Masters degree in Prehistoric Archaeology of the Aegean. She has worked in excavations all around Greece, has given speeches on various topics in Seminars and Congresses, and has appeared on documentaries about the Minoans on History Channel and Travel Channel.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Amazing

I have nothing but high praise for Dimitra. Every presentation I have attended by her has been amazing, this one especially. I have not heard or seen this material put together so brilliantly before. I was sorry that I could only see the presentation from the recording. I want to support Dimitra, because she is THAT good.

Excellent presentation.

I m really thrilled, I ve enrolled to this seminar. Mrs Pylarinou was excellent in her presentation, on a matter which is quite unknown and difficult, but every woman should be familiar with. Highly recommended.

Lots to learn!

Dimitirá spoke about recent studies describing the lives of women in the Bronze Age. Much of the information about these women was new to me, and so interesting to hear about half of society which has been ignored by history. I hope there is more to come!
