This volume examines human sexuality as an intrinsic element in the interpretation of complex colonial societies. While archaeological studies of the historic past have explored the dynamics of European colonialism, such work has largely ignored broader issues of sexuality, embodiment, commemoration, reproduction and sensuality. Recently, however, scholars have begun to recognize these issues as essential components of colonization and imperialism. This book explores a variety of case studies, revealing the multifaceted intersections of colonialism and sexuality. Incorporating work that ranges from Phoenician diasporic communities of the eighth century to Britain's nineteenth-century Australian penal colonies to the contemporary Maroon community of Brazil, this volume changes the way we understand the relationship between sexuality and colonial history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'I have taught this book in two undergraduate seminars, and I highly recommend it as a teaching text for upper-level undergraduates or graduate students. The book sparked nuanced discussions about the role of sex and sexuality in colonial encounters and about the limits and benefits of archaeological data.' Maxine Oland, American Anthropologist
'... students of archaeology, gender and sexuality will appreciate this balanced and well-researched examination of complex and multi-faceted topics.' Kiara Beaulieu, Canadian Journal of Archaeology
