In this book, Heide Göttner-Abendroth introduces landscape mythology research using the example of German landscapes. Here, material relicts of the Neolithic/ Bronze Age cultural layer are being analysed and linked to the surrounding landscape. This requires the extensive method of "intellectual archaeology", which the author has developed through years of intensive study both at home and abroad. She not only links archaeology and geography statements, but also uses mythology, folklore (folklore and customs) and language studies in an interdisciplinary manner. In this sense, the matriarchal landscape mythology is a partial area of securing evidence for early historic matriarchal cultures.
