I’m Too Tired To Come Up With A Clever Title: Mothering and Archaeology-ing In The 21st Century

Author(s): Holly Norton

Year: 2020

Summary

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Women’s Work: Archaeology and Mothering" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

I never wanted to get married or have children, and of the two not having children was the more concrete. In the end I chose to do both, marry and reproduce. I will talk about how I came to the decision to have a child just out of grad school when I was still early career, what consequences that had at the time, and what the last 5.5 years of my life have been like as an archaeologist trying to build my career and a mom trying to build my family, all at the same time. None of this advice, just a story about my individual decisions that may resonate with someone and at the very least may be slightly entertaining.
