Gender And Archaeology: Contesting The Past is the first work of critically scholarship to review the developing study of gender in past societies through archaeological evaluation of their material cultures. Roberta Gilchrist surveys the feminist critique of archaeology and feminist epistemologies, showing the unique perspective that gender archaeology can bring to bear on such diverse issues as the division of labor, life course, sexuality, and gender identity. Gender Archaeology is exhaustive, "reader friendly", seminal and scholarly work that will be much appreciated by students of feminist studies, archaeology, history, and philosophy.
