Minoan periods to suggest that men even engaged in wars. It was the female deities and women
depicted with swords and battle-axes. Not until the Late Minoan period did a male deity appear.
At first he was an agricultural god and later, he began to carry weapons.

There could have been other peoples in the Mediterranean who were female dominant matriarchies or
simply cults to a war-like female deity who fought and bore arms. The Greek Amazon myth suggests
that the Amazons came from a region over by Turkey in Asia Minor. But no one is really certain as
to which civilization that they were referring to so it was dismissed as myth.

In more recent years, up in the Ukraine area, a warrior woman was discovered preserved in ice upon
burial. Part of her skin was intact with elaborate tattoos up and down her arms. She was the height
that the Greeks suggested that the Amazons were. She was a warrior priestess of some sort, armed with
all sorts of weapons and buried with her horses and possessions.

Although the warrior priestess of the Ukraine was not from the area that the Greeks claimed the
Amazons originated, it is very possible that any of the small groupings of people during this time
could have been an Amazon society. The Greek myth dates back to this time frame c. 5-6 century BC
before the rise of the Greeks and their male dominated deity system.
