Dancing Goddesses by Barber, Elizabeth Wayland
Dancing Goddesses: Folklore, Archaeology, and the Origins of European Dance
by Barber, Elizabeth Wayland
 
From southern Greece to northern Russia, people have long believed in female spirits, bringers of fertility, who spend their nights and days dancing in fields and forests. An archaeologist, linguist, and avocational folk dancer, Elizabeth Wayland Barber has pored through ethnographic lore and archaeological reports, translating enchanting folktales about these "dancing goddesses" as well as eyewitness accounts of traditional rituals. Includes 80 illustrations.
