Swept away by the storms of war, she ended up in Germany, where she kept on with her studies at the University of Tübingen.  She studied archaeology, ethnology, and the history of religions (integrated studies again, like in the universities of Lithuania). In 1946 she defended a doctoral thesis entitled “Burial Rites in Lithuania in Prehistoric Times”, which had essentially been prepared when still in Lithuania. It was published in German in the same year. This study by M. Gimbutas made archaeological materials from Lithuania accessible to European researchers, and earned her a doctorate granted the same year by the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen
