If the figurines found in an ancient European settlement are any guide, women have been dressing to impress for at least 7,500 years.

Recent excavations at the site -- part of the Vinca culture which was Europe's biggest prehistoric civilization -- point to a metropolis with a great degree of sophistication and a taste for art and fashion, archaeologists say.

In the Neolithic settlement in a valley nestled between rivers, mountains and forests in what is now southern Serbia, men rushed around a smoking furnace melting metal for tools. An ox pulled a load of ore, passing by an art workshop and a group of young women in short skirts.

"According to the figurines we found, young women were beautifully dressed, like today's girls in short tops and mini skirts, and wore bracelets around their arms," said archaeologist Julka Kuzmanovic-Cvetkovic.

The Vinca culture is pretty fascinating... apparently this find could potentially move the start of the "Copper Age" in Europe back by 500 years. Here is the original article:

The Minoans had a pretty cool thing going on too, until the volcano. Scan through this page to see their type of fashion for women.

Sorry to see them go.

It is yet another culture which was defined by worshipping goddesses.
Respect for women
Sexual rituals
And everything else we miss today…

More and more proofs are coming up about these cultures/civilizations: Sumerians, Etruscans, Minioans, Danilo-Hvar in Croatia and now Serbia!
