Summary
"Reading the Body contains current anthropological and archaeological research about the body and the archaeological record - both physical remains and artistic representations from sites all over the world ranging in time from the European Upper Paleolithic to the Pueblo societies of the recent past. Essay topics include the reconstruction of the lives of Etruscan women from skeletal remains, gender symbolism in Inuit burials, the erotic clothing of Crete's Minoan culture, and gender identities in Maya ceramic paintings."--BOOK JACKET
