Invisible Women of Prehistory

3 Million Years of peace, 6000 years of war.

This book may both fascinate and annoy you.

I don't agree with the authors belief Indo Europeans invented war and spread it around the world nor in Mayan - Chinese contact or a regular transpacific trade route however they do have some interesting ideas about using symbols and art  to analyse ancient culture and unlike some writers in this area they do look at actual artifacts and cite sources and review writings on matrilineality.

Worth a look at.
