This blog about motherhood in prehistory accompanies the research projects ‘The social status of motherhood in Bronze Age Europe‘ and ‘The value of mothers to society: responses to motherhood and child rearing practices in prehistoric Europe‘.
It intends to provide insights into ongoing research, as well as collect random ideas, thoughts and links with some relevance to the topic ‘motherhood in prehistory’ more generally.
I have often found that research unveils interesting bits and bobs that do not fit in journal articles, book chapters and monographs, but nevertheless shape how I think about a certain topic. This blog is therefore set up as a lose collection of notes of curious, funny, interesting or otherwise noteworthy stuff.
