PDF EBook by Sarah Milledge Nelson

EBook Description

Exploding the traditional myth that view queens as simply an appendage to the king, these essays explore the social and cultural constructions of female power. Ancient Queens PDF EBook This volume does more than merely identify and describe queens, but rather, offers its readers an understanding of the roles of these 'dominant women', situated within archaeological discourse that change our assumptions about female- PDFruled societies. Examining the ancient societies in Asia, North and South America, Europe and Africa, the authors explore the powerful positions held by queens, as well as the role that gender played in their kingdoms. Spearheading the notion that 'women's work' is not the same in all cultures, the contributions in this volume compel readers to rethink gender relationships and ideology in our cultures.
