5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing and Exciting Journey into a World too Little Known, 16 Mar 2006
By A Customer
I started to read this book for resesearch for a dissertation and found that this book opened a whole new world up to me which I had not considered as really existing before.
The book is accessible to anyone, from archaeologist to classics nut, and there is no problems with technical jargin to get in the way of the text. I would recommend this book to anyone who has even a passing interest in ancient culture, but most especially to anyone who wishes to explore the world of female warriors in a context different to the more accustomed Amazons or Celtic female warriors. Wonderful Book.

4.0 out of 5 stars women in history, 30 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While the book may read a bit like an american documentary, it sheds a strong light on the subject of women as warriors, from an archaological viewpoint. It seems, that just because a person was buried with a weapon, no longer means with 100% assurity the person was male. A book full of fascinating facts, shopwing the path of her research. I do recommend it.
