WOMAN the Gatherer by Frances Dahlberg 1983


Woman the Gatherer. Frances Dahlberg, Yale University Press, 1983.


Studies of human evolution and prehistory that use the concept “man the hunter” assign a crucial role to hunting in the formation of our species.  This emphasis on male activities in the human adaptation neglects the female’s role in evolution.  To redress the balance, Frances Dahlberg has here assembled six new essays, based on original research, which review the likely paths of human evolution and discuss the roles and activities of women in prehistoric groups and among contemporary hunter-gatherers.
