Approche du genre au travers du mobilier funéraire issu de cinq nécropoles danubiennes

Abstract : In the modern society dominated by man, feminist studies on gender can be interpreted as a reconsideration of social system and his history. It is in this context that archaeology will consider the gender question. In first case, results of archaeological studies have been used as examples to illustrate man/ woman inequality. However, the archaeology has evolved to become an important part of the gender studies. Instead of asking the question of real signification of gender and his roots, the aim of this thesis ask the question of the sexual identity as social construction. The main corpus is composed by material culture in the funerary danubian context. Considering age and sex factors in our corpus, could we tell that objects can reveal the social identity of people in the past? Outcomes seem to indicate that artifact could indeed be related to gender's identity, but as well at task-differentiation.
