On February 5, Petra Goedegebuure, of the Oriental Institute, gave the Second Marija Gimbutas Memorial Lecture. The title of her talk was “Anatolians on the Move: From Kurgans to Kanesh”. The presentation was extremely well attended, especially considering that a snowstorm was taking place that evening.
Using linguistic analyses, her findings further support those reported by Colin Renfrew who, two years ago, presented genetic research data supporting Marija Gimbutas’ Kurgan hypothesis.
