Divine Women

I've been watching Episode 1 of 'Divine Women'. It was wonderful to see the ancient sites I've only read about in books.

And the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford has an extensive collection of Goddess figurines. It reminded me of the Goddess figurines in Malta, in the National Museum there. Museums are never friendly for us camera users, understandably. But above is one of the photos I took in Malta. They have case after case of goddess figures. It's quite astounding.

The programme is still on BBC iplayer at the moment.
