The Archaeology of the Night - TAS 35

Much of archaeological site interpretation is based on a bias of not only typical male and female responsibilities, but also, activities that take place during the day time. Both of those are assumptions that need to change. Editors Nancy Gonlin and April Nowell produced a book called, "Archaeology of the Night" to get other archaeologists to consider their work from the perspective of the night. What are we missing by not considering special artifacts and features that may be designed for use at night? This is a fascinating episode that challenges our assumptions about site interpretation.
