Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The three editors (women from the Institute of Archaeology, University College London) present 17 essays dealing with issues of modern female archaeologists as well as archaeological discourse on women in antiquity. Topics include whether gender archaeology and archaeology of women should both be studied, the women excavators of El-Wad Cave in Palestine, women and the emergence of urban society in Mesopotamia, and what asexual figurines in the Neolithic period in the Aegean represented in comparison to those with a distinguishable gender." —Book News, Inc.

"Historians of archaeology will find the papers on the work of Winifred Lamb, Marija Gimbutas, and the three women excavators of El-Wad Cave in 1929 useful. Valuable for college and university libraries supporting degree programs in anthropology, archaeology, museum studies, and women's studies. Summing up: Recommended. " - R.B.M. Ridinger, CHOICE
