VIII, 293 pp. softcover
The non-literary Deir el-Medîna ostraca texts form the main source material for this study of the women of the royal workmen's community. The life-span of the household provides the frame within which women's social roles and status are discussed by examining women's titles, actions, circumstances, as well as opinions voiced by and about women.
