Alice Beck Kehoe is well-known within the field of American archaeology for questioning orthodoxy and challenging the traditional white male perspective on other cultures, past and present. She has published sixteen books, of which one has had three editions and two others a second edition, plus numerous articles and professional papers. Several of her books are texts widely used in anthropological courses. Teaching thousands of undergraduates honed her ability to present ideas in direct, lively prose and to use stories and anecdotes that prick readers’ unconscious biases. Her memoir, Girl Archaeologist in a Man’s World, is a story not only of a woman’s persistence in a scientific field but of speaking truth to power.
Alice Kehoe’s memoir, Girl Archaeologist in a Man’s World, is available as a book proposal and draft manuscript on request from the author.
