The Oldest Europeans by J.F. del Giorgio

Who are we? Were do we come from? What made European women different?

What made Europe unique? Geneticists have deduced, from their DNA studies, that about some fifteen thousands years ago there was a catastrophe in Europe. It happened during the peak of the Ice Age. Only a few hundreds of female-centered families survived in the continent. Most Europeans are their descendants. Ancient European women had an astonishing high status. Tribal power came only through them.

Their Mother Goddess myths were the precursors of classic and renaissance art. Paleolithic rituals gave birth to modern theater. Modern religious festivities keep some of their fertility cult celebrations.

Cover The book describes their societies and the clash against the invading Indo-European tribes that suppressed women's rights and dethroned them from their control of religious rituals.

The still formidable influence of those mostly ignored ancient societies has forged the European soul and originated the American traditions of freedom. It is still deeply influencing the world.

Basques, Celts, Etruscans, Pelasgians and Scandinavians parade through these pages tied by their DNA, revealing a surprising world full of werewolves, snake-priestesses, witches and sex rituals.
