    DescriptionThis text explores the lost world of women warriors that stretches from Europe to Asia. Through her work, Jeannine Davis-Kimball has unearthed an entire ancient class of women who defy historical assumptions because for centuries women wielded tremendous power in territories from China to the ancient Celtic lands. In her search for the truth, she reveals: the origin of the Amazons, a fierce nomadic tribe of women who inspired legends; a mysterious mummified priestess found in China - but of Celtic origin; banshees - historically lonely, screeching hags but they can be traced back to powerful Celtic fertility symbols; the excavation of a site on the Eurasian Steppe filled with powerful members of an ancient nomadic cult, previously always thought to be men. Modern women should find this look at history enlightening and empowering. The book weaves science, mythology and mystical cultures into an historical tapestry depicting some of the unsung heroes and leaders of the past.
