News article: Nubian Stone Tablets Discovered

 
From the article: "Archaeologists excavating a vast and ancient 'city of the dead' in Africa have recovered the largest collection of texts in the mysterious language of the Kushites. Dating back to 2,700 years ago, the find includes extraordinary tablets commemorating the dead. The items hail from a site called Sedeinga in Sudan, known for the ruins of a temple dedicated to the 14th century BCE Egyptian queen Tiye, the grandmother of Tutankhamun. One significant find was a chapel lintel depicting Maat, the Egyptian goddess of law, balance, order, harmony, peace and justice. They also found two commemorative texts dedicated to women of high rank."

News Article: Women ran things in ancient Peru


From the article: "Women in ancient Peru, far from being marginalized and invisible, were political and economic decision-makers, according to a new study that challenges many traditional takes on the country's history. Historian Maritza Villavicencio sets out the findings that run counter to previous hypotheses that high-ranking pre-Columbian women in Peru were mere "priestesses" in "Mujer, poder y alimentacion en el antiguo Peru" ("Woman, power and food in ancient Peru"). Instead, she asserts, they were monarchs. The book, published by San Martin de Porres University, is the result of the 10 years of research."

News Article: Brazilians honor Yemanja


From the article:
"Thousands of Brazilians flooded beaches around the northeastern city of Salvador to pay tribute to the sea goddess Yemanja and ask for her protection ahead of Carnival celebrations. Even before dawn broke, devotees dressed in white and blue clothing brought offerings to the Praia Rio Vermelha, or Red River Beach, and then later to nearby Itaparica Island. They paraded toward the sea with baskets filled with red, white and yellow roses and other gifts, incl...uding ornately dressed dolls, mirrors, perfume and bottles of Champagne. Some carried fishing nets and images of the goddess who is depicted in blue flowing robes. Yemanja is important for all of those who make a living from fishing, said Nivanilson Silva, a Candomble follower. 'She is our mother,' he said. 'She is the one who governs these waters, which sustain us.' "
