A 2,000-year-old skeleton with a mask on its face has been found in the Aizanoi ancient city in Kütahya, during excavations in the area which have been continuing for two years now with new findings emerging.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, excavation group president Pamukkale University Archeology academic Elif Özer said the excavations had been ongoing since 2011, and many findings had been excavated from the area. The skeleton was excavated from the northern part of the necropolis eras.
The mask of the skeleton was found along with the face and the body. This mask is thought to have been used in the burial ceremonies in Aizonoi, said Özer. The mask was put on the face of the dead and this might signify the relation of the dead with the ceremony of Dionysos.
At the same time, excavations in Rome, Italy also uncovered masks. These masks have been related to ancestor cult, according to Özer. “We are doing research on this issue,” she added.
The status of women in ancient civilizations was dictated by religion and position, rarely impacting the everyday lives of everyday female interactions.
For the vast majority of women in the Ancient world, daily life revolved around the home as caretakers of children or household managers. Historians that cite examples of powerful women usually rely upon exceptional females, often associated with religious rituals such as the Oracle at Delphi or Rome’s Vestal Virgins. Although the Mediterranean pantheon of goddesses reflects power and cult-following, their example inspired upper class women as well as men, as in the case of the cult of Isis. The lives of everyday women were scarcely affected.
The Science Museum of Mineesota's exhibit on the Maya appropriately opened yesterday on the Summer Solstice. They have a great video talking about the exhibit, and they feature Xunantunich and Caracol on it. The exhibit features artifacts from Cahal Pech too.
"The Maya created one of the great civilizations of the ancient world. Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed, opening June 21, 2013 at the Science Museum of Minnesota, explores ancient Maya society through the eyes of powerful kings and queens and the farmers, artisans, administrators, and craftsmen who supported the elite and made up the foundations of these ancient states. The exhibition will feature artifacts from throughout the Maya world, interactive exhibits and evocative environments to make the lives of the Maya relevant, accessible, and approachable."
