Grit-tempered: Early Women Archaeologists in the Southeastern United States by
Call Number: CC110 .G75 1999eb
Edited by White, Sullivan, and Marrinan, “this is a remarkable book about ten remarkable archaeologists who made significant contributions to their discipline during a time when that discipline was structured to exclude their kind (female).” The focus is on the Southeastern region of the United States, and the writing merges autobiographical and biographical content on the ten. Many suggestions are provided for further research, including comparisons with earlier works done about the women archaeologists in other regions such as the Southwest. A look at the imbalance of the archaeological record in terms of women in prehistory and history is discussed.
