Abstract

Archaeologists are confronted with many ethical issues in their daily practice; these questions also concern their practices and their behaviour towards their peers. The highlighting of gender discrimination, sometimes combined with other elements such as ethnicity, sexual orientation, social origin, physical abilities or religious beliefs, should thus be a fundamental element in reflections on professional ethics in archaeology. The “Archaeo-Sexism” exhibition presented here, a joint initiative of the Archaeo-Ethics Association and Paye Ta Truelle, is an example of such reflection.
