What a lovely talk Prof. Adrienne Mayor gave at The Getty Villa in Malibu in February and it is my great pleasure to have her on the show to share with my listeners what she has learned from her extensive research about the legendary Amazons. We'll discuss the many Amazonian women, hear about their stories, discover where they really lived and what their lives were like. It might surprise you! Be sure to tune in! Prof. Adrienne Mayor is an independent folklorist/historian of science who investigates natural knowledge contained in pre-scientific myths and oral traditions. She's also the author of two books on pre-Darwinian fossil traditions in classical antiquity and in Native America. Titles of her books not on the Amazons include Poison King: the life and Legend of Mithradates the Great, Rome's Deadliest Encmy, Fossil Legends of the First Americans, and the First Fossil Hunters: Paleontology in Greek and Roman Times.
