Abstract

Providing an insider's perspective on what it's like to work on an excavation as a "Director's wife," the author offers a unique retrospective on the challenges and rewards of this difficult role. Gender roles, even in the hidebound world of archaeology, have changed significantly since the time of the women whose lives she examines. Nonetheless, it is today more important than ever to remember the, largely unacknowledged, contributions of "dig wives."
