Circumpolar Lives and Livelihood: A Comparative

Circumpolar Lives and Livelihood is a cross-cultural ethnoarchaeological examine of the gendered nature of subsistence in northern hunter-gatherer-fisher societies. in response to box reviews of 4 circumpolar societies, it files the complexities of women’s and men’s involvement in foodstuff procurement, processing, and garage, and the connection of such behaviors to the outfitted panorama. averting simplistic stereotypes of female and male roles, the framework of “gendered landscapes” unearths the variety and adaptability of women’s and men’s real lives in a fashion valuable for archaeological interpretations of hunter-foragers.

Innovative in scope and layout, this is often the 1st research to hire a managed, four-way, cross-cultural comparability of gender and subsistence. participants of a world crew of anthropologists skilled in northern scholarship observe a similar task-differentiation technique in reports of Chipewyan hunter-fishers of Canada, Khanty hunter-fisher-herders of Western Siberia, Sámi in depth reindeer herders of northwestern Finland, and Iñupiaq maritime hunters of the Bering Strait of Alaska. This database on gender and subsistence is used to reconsider one of many bedrock recommendations in anthropology and social technology: the sexual department of work.
