This collection of essays represents research currently being undertaken on women's lives and their representations in various ancient societies. It provides a forum for the exchange and development of ideas and methods at a crucial period in the growth of women's studies in the UK. It extends the customary parameters of 'ancient history', geographically and chronologically, to include ancient India, Anglo-Saxon Britain and representations of women in twentieth century cinema.
