Before Sumer, Crete or the Maltese civilization, there was “Old Europe”, or the Turdash-Vinca culture…a forgotten, rather than lost civilization that lies at the true origin of most of our ancient civilizations.
LIVING SPACE Artifacts from the Lower Danube Valley and the Balkan foothills are presented in an exhibition, “The Lost World of Old Europe,” at New York University’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World. C., they farmed and built sizable towns, a few with as many as 2,000 dwellings.
They mastered large-scale copper smelting, the new technology of the age.
Their graves held an impressive array of exquisite headdresses and necklaces and, in one cemetery, the earliest major assemblage of gold artifacts to be found anywhere in the world.
The striking designs of their pottery speak of the refinement of the culture’s visual language.
Until recent discoveries, the most intriguing artifacts were the ubiquitous terracotta “goddess” figurines, originally interpreted as evidence of the spiritual and political power of women in society.
