Overview

Archaeology and Women draws together from a variety of angles work currently being done within a contemporary framework on women in archaeology. One section of this collection of original articles addresses the historical and contemporary roles of women in the discipline. Another attempts to link contemporary archaeological theory and practice to work on women and gender in other fields. Finally, this volume presents a wide diversity of theoretical approaches and methods of study of women in the ancient world, representing a cross section of work being carried out today under the broad banner of gender archaeology. The geographical and chronological range of the contributions is also wide, from Southeast Asia and South America to Western Asia, Egypt and Europe, from Great Britain to Greece, and from 10,000 years ago to the recent past. An ideal sampler for courses dealing with women and archaeology.

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
