Short biography
Gertrude Rachel Levy worked at archeological sites in Iraq before World War II, including the now-famous expeditions of the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute. During the war, when these sites were unavailable, she began to research common religious images and structures from different parts of the ancient world. She wrote influential books on comparative mythology, matriarchy, epic poetry, and archaeology. The best known is The Gate of Horn: A Study of the Religious Concepts of the Stone Age, and Their Influence upon European Thought (1948).
