Bronze Age women travelers


I love when research helps crack open old assumptions. I have a friend who applauds whenever a lame concept gets broken or dispelled. Applause please: "..between 2500 and 1650BC... over a period of some 800 years, European women travelled between 300km and 500km from their home villages to start families, while men tended to stay near where they were born." “Our study suggests that almost none of the men had travelled, while two thirds of the women had.”

Victoria Ward reports in the Telegraph.
