DESCRIPTION

In this episode Dr. Evy Papadopoulou, Curator of Prehistoric Antiquities at the Museum of Cycladic Art talks with Marietta Kypriotaki, Assistant Curator of Antiquities at the Museum of Cycladic Art, about the history of women from the Prehistoric Ages to the Classical Antiquity in the city-state of Athens. The discussion begins with the Cycladic Civilization and the enigmatic figurines that deify the female form and glorify fertility, and then proceed to an extensive reference to the divine and mythical women who remain praised to all to this day. But what was the daily life of women like in classical Athens? The two archaeologists chronicle the interesting aspects of some of the most important events in the daily life of an ancient Athenian such as the sacrament of marriage, the duties of married life and the key role in burial ceremonies.
