Hardcover Since the mid-80's, the question of gender has been trendy in the West, but those of us who are studying the gendered past are still mapping out the territory and
laying down connecting routes to archaeological facts. This volume introduces a new approach to tackling sex and human relationships in the archaeological record. Cultures, in all societies, shape sexual expressions and desires. Sex is provided, while gender is acquired, imposed or selected depending on the cultural constraints that prevail in a given culture. Our roles in any society are labeled and placed. This changes through our life, from birth to death to old age, and even in death. This book studies in detail the material culture record of many ancient societies; Yoruba, Natufian, Egyptian, South Asian and Chinese, to see how society shapes everyone's role in it and how that is preserved in the archaeological record.
