The Goddess and the Bull: Catalhoyuk: An Archaeological Journey to the Dawn of Civilization, Balter, Michael

The Goddess and the Bull: Catalhoyuk: An Archaeological Journey to the Dawn of Civilization
New York Free Press; Simon & Schuster 2005 0743243609 / 9780743243605 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Swogger, John-Gordon 
399 pp., illus., map, biblio., index; 24 cm. Tight, clean copy. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. A fine copy of the first printing. "Thousands of years before the pyramids were built in Egypt and the Trojan War was fought, a great civilization arose on the Anatolian plains. The Goddess and the Bull details the dramatic quest by archaeologists to unearth the buried secrets of human cultural evolution at this huge, spectacularly well-preserved 9,500-year-old village in Turkey. Here lie the origins of modern society--the dawn of art, architecture, religion, family--even the first tangible evidence of human self-awareness, the world's oldest mirrors. Some archaeologists have claimed that the Mother Goddess was first worshipped at Çatalhöyük, which is now a site of pilgrimage for Goddess worshippers from all over the world. The excavations here have yielded the seeds of the Neolithic Revolution, when prehistoric humans first abandoned the hunter-gatherer life they had known for millions of years, invented farming, and began living in houses and communities. Michael Balter, the excavation's official biographer, brings readers behind the scenes, providing the first inside look at the remarkable site and its history of scandal and thrilling scientific discovery. He tells the very human story of two colorful men: British archaeologist James Mellaart, who discovered Çatalhöyük in 1958 only to be banned from working at the site forever after a fabulous ancient treasure disappeared without a trace; and Ian Hodder, a pathbreaking archaeological rebel who reinvented the way archaeology is practiced and reopened the excavation after it had lain dormant for three decades. Today Hodder leads an international team of more than one hundred archaeologists who continue to probe the site's secrets. Balter reveals the true story behind modern archaeology--the thrill of history-making scientific discovery as well as the crushing disappointments, the community and friendship, the love affairs, and the often bitter rivalries between warring camps of archaeologists. Along the way, Balter describes the cutting-edge advances in archaeological science that have allowed the team at Çatalhöyük to illuminate the central questions of human existence." - Publisher.

Women's Work: The First 20,000 Years: Women, Cloth, and Society in Early Times, Barber, Elizabeth Wayland
14 Barber, Elizabeth Wayland
Women's Work: The First 20,000 Years: Women, Cloth, and Society in Early Times
New York W. W. Norton & Company, Inc. 1994 0393035069 / 9780393035063 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
334 pp., illus., maps, bib. notes, index; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "New discoveries about the textile arts reveal women's unexpectedly influential role in ancient societies. Twenty thousand years ago, women were making and wearing the first clothing created from spun fibers. In fact, right up to the Industrial Revolution the fiber arts were an enormous economic force, belonging primarily to women. Despite the great toil required in making cloth and clothing, most books on ancient history and economics have no information on them. Much of this gap results from the extreme perishability of what women produced, but it seems clear that until now descriptions of prehistoric and early historic cultures have omitted virtually half the picture. Elizabeth Wayland Barber has drawn from data gathered by the most sophisticated new archaeological methods - methods she herself helped to fashion. In a 'brilliantly original book' (Katha Pollitt, Washington Post Book World), she argues that women were a powerful economic force in the ancient world, with their own industry: fabric. / Elizabeth Wayland Barber teaches linguistics and archaeology at Occidental College in California." - Publisher.
