    Ancient Greek gods and goddesses were associated with different symbols, animals and objects. These often relate to what aspect of the world they were believed to be responsible for. This activity requires the students to translate written details into visual clues. Curriculum links: Art and Design, History, RE. The Great Goddess, the Divine Ancestress, was worshiped as far back as the Upper Paleolithic ab BC -- not BC as had been previously believed by archaeologists and scholars based on archaeological evidence. The last Goddess temples were closed about AD.

    The Celtic deities are known from a variety of sources such as written Celtic mythology, ancient places of worship, statues, engravings, religious objects, as well as place and personal names.. Celtic deities can belong to two categories: general deities and local deities. "General deities" were known by the Celts throughout large regions, and are the gods and goddesses called upon for. In ancient Babylon she was Anat, in Egypt, Isis and Hathor, Dana in Celtic Ireland, Rhea and Demeter in Greece, and in India, Anapurna the Provider. She is the Great Goddess, the Goddess of Beginnings, the symbol of Earth and the giver of life, the Vast Mother, who represents all the powers and mysteries of creation for early humanity.

    Inanna is an ancient Mesopotamian goddess associated with love, beauty, sex, war, justice, and political power. She was originally worshiped in Sumer and was later worshipped by the Akkadians, Babylonians, and Assyrians under the name Ishtar. She was known as the "Queen of Heaven" and was the patron goddess of the Eanna temple at the city of Uruk, which was her main cult center. The British gods are sometimes described as divided into three families--the "Children of Dôn", the "Children of Nudd", and the "Children of Llyr". But these three families are really only two; for Nudd, or Lludd, as he is variously called, is himself described as a son of Beli, who was the husband of the goddess .
