Search for: [Abstract = "Krumlovský les revealed one of the largest mining fields in Europe dated from the Mesolithic to the Hallstatt period. Quarrying culminated in the Early Bronze Age, when the local Jurassic chert, re\-deposited in the Miocene sands, was extracted from hundreds of shafts up to 8m deep, with most of the production material left at the site. The largest shafts of the Late Lengyel culture were located on a slope below a re\-deposited boulder. Shaft no. 4 yielded two skeletons of females\; the lower one had a newborn placed on her breasts. Both women were found to be the shortest of the then population as a whole, and they were weak, diseased, and poorly fed during their childhood. By contrast, as adults they were fed with meat and carried out heavy work, which is corroborated by strongly marked muscle attachments and vertebral degeneration. The hypothesis is that the patriarchy extracted labor \(also\) from lower status individuals who toiled in the mines. However ritual aspects cannot be excluded\: in some lands, the Earth is of female gender, and as such will more willingly accept women than men… but why exactly the smallest ones\?"]
