Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Judging from this collection of eight essays, which are reprinted from Part IV of Handbook of Gender in Archeology the study of gender has spread to all continents and all schools of thought in archeology. Editor Nelson (archeology, U. of Denver) has selected works that consider the research on gender and archeological evidence for gender distinctions in Africa, East and South Asia, Australia, Europe, Mesoamerica, and North and South America. The result is rich in theory as well as enlightening in terms of evidence, as contributors give critical appraisals of the history and progress of the archeology of gender, acknowledging that although researchers have done significant work, there is still much to be done to make up for generations of archeologists ignoring the fact that artifacts and other evidence relating to women even existed.
