Archaeology and Women: Ancient and Modern Issues (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


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.

Sue Hamilton is Reader in Later European Prehistory at the Institute of Archaeology, UCL. Her published work has been on British and European Bronze and Iron Age societies and technologies (particularly ceramics). Her main interests in recent years have been landscape archaeology, phenomenology, archaeological field practice and its published formats. She has worked in, and continues to maintain strong links with, contract archaeology. She has conducted fieldwork in southern Britain, France, and Italy. Her most recent work incorporates consideration of gendered landscapes and the use of gendered perspectives in field practice. Ruth D. Whitehouse is Professor of Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London. She has researched for many years on Italian and West Mediterranean prehistory, concentrating on social archaeology in general and more specifically on ritual and religion. In the last decade she has also pursued research into gender archaeology. Combining these areas of interest is an edited volume, Gender and Italian Archaeology. Challenging the Stereotypes (1998). Katherine I. Wright is Lecturer in Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, University College London. She studied archaeology, anthropology and Near Eastern languages and history at Yale University. Her research centers primarily on Neolithic and Bronze Age societies of western Asia, with emphasis on problems in social organization, the emergence of social hierarchies, food processing, dress and the body, ground stone technologies, and stone bead making. She has been involved in research in Jordan, Syria and Turkey.
