B. M. Alseikaitė-Gimbutienė was most famous for her new approach to archelogy. Traditionally archaeologists only dig and describe their findings, and she began to explain their meaning. It is considered to be the pioneer of Archaeomythology, a field of archaeology that combines archaeology, linguistics, ethnology and theology. It also laid the foundations for a new conception of European prehistory that a peaceful civilization based on artistic creation and intangible values flourished in Neolithic Europe.
