How is the seemingly theoretical discipline of gender analysis related to archaeological practice? General analysis affords archaeologists with insights into the way material culture forms social relations between men and women and their social roles, and through the use of many different factors it helps determine roles and explain mutual interaction between both genders in prehistoric society.
Although gender analysis as a scientific research method is almost unknown in the Czech academic environment, its high level of success is objectively proven in the number of foriegn studies published. Using specific examples, this book strives to demonstrate the practical uses of this method when solving archaeological issues and examining cultural and social components.
