The Libyan Amazon women warriors’ prowess in battle was a small part of their story. Emerging from Western North Africa generations before Carthaginian and Roman occupation, their conquests stretched from the Atlantic deep into Germany and beyond. Because they left no records, we must discover them on our own. This is the story of Myrina, Queen of the Libyan Amazons, and her conquests. Myrina, the female version of Alexander the Great, led an army of 33,000 female warriors. She destroyed her enemies with the combined arms of infantry, cavalry, and archery.
Drawing on ancient texts and modern discoveries, Craig Candelore takes you into the world of the Libyan Amazons. Where did they come from? How did they live? How did they become so feared, so fierce and powerful that they were chronicled 3,500 years later? And why did they disappear? From their rise to their downfall, embark on a journey like no other in The Libyan Amazons and the Conquest of Continents, the exciting debut of author Craig A. Candelore.
The format of this course will consist of an approximately 20 minute lecture followed by a Q&A session lasting approximately 5 minutes. Although we model the new EFC format after collegiate courses, we respectfully ask all in attendance to refrain from asking questions during the lecture portion so as to give the speaker(s) ample time to get through the material.
Refreshments are generously provided each week by Arlene Arreola. Donations to help cover the costs are accepted. Additional refreshments will be available for purchase downstairs at the Skyline Café after class. We ask that you exercise good stewardship and help us keep the facility in good order by cleaning up after yourself.
Once the class is officially dismissed, we encourage ongoing information exchange and networking. If you have any questions that did not get answered in class, please email them to us and we’ll either incorporate the responses into a future session or email you back directly.
