Female Shamans and Medicine Women

Just a brief video on Female Shamans and Medicine Women. I do hope you enjoy this quick analysis.

Suggested reading: Mykhailova, Nataliia; (2019). ” ‘Shaman’ burials in prehistoric Europe. Gendered images? “, In: Koch, Julia Katharina; Kirleis, Wiebke (eds.), Gender Transformations in Prehistoric and Archaic Societies, Scales of Transformation, 06, Sidestone Press, pp. 341-362.

Although I suggest reading the whole series if you are interested in gender-roles, transformations in gender identities, gender-transformations, gender perception, gender roles in ritual behaviour etc., in archaic societies, by several authors.

Porr, Martin; Alt, Kurt W.; (2006). “The Burial of Bad Dürrenberg, Central Germany: Osteopathology and Osteoarchaeology of a Late Mesolithic Shaman’s Grave”, In: International Journal of Osteoarchaeology 16(5), Published online 24 March 2006 in Wiley InterScience (www.interscience.wiley.com), pp. 395 – 406.
