Despite feminist critiques over three decades, Archaeological scholarship remains predominantly focused on exploring patriarchal narratives and is thereby complicit in reinforcing structural inequalities. Questions must be asked of how the construction of archaeological knowledge affects representation and impacts on our ‘archaeologies’. This paper explores the relative absence of gendered approaches within Archaeology through the lens of Later Medieval Archaeology in particular, and with a micro-focus on Castle-studies in Britain and Ireland. Is there a reason for the silence in relation to gender in the archaeology of the later middle ages?
