Description - The Archaeology of Mothering by Laurie A. Wilkie

Remarkably, motherhood is a subject that has largely been ignored by archaeologists who focus on gender and history. Using archaeological materials recovered from a house site in Mobile, Alabama, Laurie Wilkie explores how one extended African-American family engaged with competing and conflicting mothering ideologies in the post-Emancipation South. The female head of this household, Lucrecia Perryman, turned to midwifery to support her family and as a midwife, became a vehicle for transmitting cultural, social and political knowledge regarding mothering performance and practice to the broader African-American community
