Exploring the Legacy of Marija Gimbutas: Uncovering the Signs Out of Time and Women in history


In my book The Hidden Camino, I reference the research of Dr. Marija Gimbutas multiple times. While I discuss her in other articles on my blog, today I would like to direct your attention to Dr. Gimbutas herself in this remarkable and beautiful documentary Signs out of Time, narrated by the renowned Olympia Dukakis. The documentary is presented in English.


Marija Gimbutas was a pioneering archaeologist and anthropologist known for her ground-breaking research on the Neolithic and Bronze Age cultures of Europe. Her work focused on the study of ancient symbolism, art, and rituals, shedding light on the spiritual/religous and social aspects of prehistoric societies. And what many archaeologists still have a problem with today, is that her solid research highlight the important social and religious roles, women held back then.





Signs out of Time captures the essence of Dr. Gimbutas’ discoveries and the profound impact they had on our understanding of the past. The documentary takes viewers on a captivating journey through time, exploring the rich tapestry of symbolism and meaning woven into the artifacts and sites unearthed by Dr. Gimbutas and her colleagues.


Through stunning visuals and insightful commentary, Signs out of Time brings to life the world of our ancestors, inviting us to contemplate the mysteries of the past and the ways in which ancient cultures shaped the foundations of our present society. It is a testament to Dr. Gimbutas’ enduring legacy and her invaluable contributions to the field of archaeology and women in history.


Watching this documentary is not just a viewing experience; it is a chance to delve into the wonders of history and archaeology, to connect with the stories of those who came before us, and to appreciate the complexities of human civilization. So, sit back, relax, and let Signs out of Time take you on an unforgettable journey through the hidden realms of the past.
