    The Indus Valley Civilization and Minoan Crete: matriarchies?

    Due to the apparent dominance of the Mother Goddess(es) in both the Indus Valley Civilization and Minoan Crete, the lack of definitive evidence indicating patriarchal kingship, and the seemingly non-aggressive nature of both the IVC and Crete, may we perhaps infer a type of peaceful matriarchal...
