Sexual division of labour at the start of agriculture? A multi proxy approach through LBK lifeways and workways
19/05/2021 @ 12:00 PM
This work aims to integrate sexual division of labour into the research of the transition to the Neolithic, to better understand how gendered work could have shaped social life.
Drawing upon the use-wear traces from over 400 stone tools from six cemeteries of the earliest Neolithic in central Europe this talk provides insights into what tasks could have been associated with women and men. These results are correlated with the osteological, isotopic and other grave good data, informing on sexed-based differences in diet, mobility and symbolism, and demonstrating the importance of integrating a gendered perspective into Neolithic studies.
