    1. This book is awesome sauce. Jeannine Davis-Kimball's interestingly written and amazingly information Warrior Women: An Archaeologist's Search for History's Hidden Heroines was just what I needed to get me out of my all YAL SFF, all the time rut.Davis-Kimball came to archaeology late in life - or at least later than the norm as she had already had a "life" prior - but man did she attack her new career with awesome dedication. The woman impressed me almost as much as the book, and that's saying so [...]

    2. The title doesn't do this book justice and although one can't say it's totally misleading, it was misleading enough to make me hesitate reading it. A better title would have been "Musings by a Female Field Archaeologist" as it is an interesting journal of how the same discoveries can be interpreted through the different eyes of their discoverers. Hence the famous "Gold Man" discovered near the village of Issyk in southern Kazakstan in 1969, muses Dr. Davis Kimball, is more likely to have been a [...]

    3. When I was a kid I loved nothing better than to read about prehistoric animals. And my favourite books on the subject were those written by the famous Roy Chapman Andrews - who could have been the paleontological equivalent to Indiana Jones.Andrews' books were great because he didn't just write about the animals whose fossils he hunted - he wrote about the hunt, the tough country traversed, the hard rock scraped and sifted.The same themes run through Jeannine Davis-Kimball's book, only her scien [...]

    4. I enjoyed Warrior Women, but it was also frustrating in some ways - she only talks about areas that she's had personal experience with, such as the Chinese mummies, which didn't really fit with the "Hidden Heroine" topic. The title also lead me to believe that the book was mainly about, well, warrior women. In reality, they only made up one chapter, maybe two if you count the chapter on the s, whom have no evidence of actually existing but were probably made up based on stories of foreign women [...]

    5. In a nutshell: Well-researched and well-argued where deeper research wasn't possible. Davis-Kimball doesn't make any hugely sensationalist claims and the most out-there claims she does make are not exactly Marija Gimbutas level "Women were in charge once and everything was equal and perfect and wonderful and there were unicorns that shat rainbows" stuff. If there's anything about the book that is sensationalist, it's the title. Davis-Kimball certainly unearthed women of power and status, be they [...]

    6. It is great work chasing the footsteps of the warrior women in Middle Asia. Well, apparently the existed but not in the form of the Ancient Greeks wrote because their aim was to create some image to keep their women docile and keep their patriarchal ways.The other very important discovery is the “Golden Man!”. When the grave was opened it became cleared that the “Golden Man” was actually “Golden Woman”. Apparently the women of the past were deliberately made to be forgotten and the [...]

    7. Warrior Women in a Fierce World Warrior Women by Jeannine Davis-Kimball, Ph.D. explores the elements of parts of history that today's society left behind. The strong and powerful women who shaped our world but not our text books. The women who could have held their own with men and not back down. For this reason if not the spectacular imagery or wild adventures that flow from Davis’s pen alone should make you and any young women aspiring for great things to read it as well. I treasure the know [...]

    8. A book about an archaeologist traipsing through the Tien Shan mountains in Central Asia identifying examples of strong women in ancient societies? Yes, please! Only took me so long to finish because I birth halfway through.

    9. Three cheers for Jeannine Davis-Kimball for returning to school after a career in nursing, cattle ranching, and raising six kids, to become an archaeologist and obtain a PhD. Inspiring. She shares a lot about the details of the process, the craft of archaeology, and the patience and meticulous work habits that are necessary. It was fascinating to read. I look forward to watching the NOVA documentary, "Mysterious Mummies of China" which she collaborated on and describes in this book. However, I d [...]

    10. Warrior Women is a nonfiction account of the author's work to uncover and prove the existence of female warriors in the Eurasian Steppe. I found this book to be very interested because I'm currently studying to be an archaeologist and it introduced me to a lot of lesser known ancient cultures and traditions of the nomadic steppe people. It also mixed in a lot of middle eastern traditions as well as focusing whole chapters on the s and females in Celtic myth. While I found these diversions from t [...]

    11. Extremely fascinating! I picked this up after seeing it mentioned in the s book I'm still working through, and I'm really glad I did. This was a much more concise look at the topic of women warriors, with more of a focus on the people of the Eurasia area. She started by peering down at one particular nomadic tribe very closely then moving out and across the globe, ending with the Celts which was very interesting. There was some overlap between things I'd read already and what she talked about bu [...]

    12. When I was in college, I took a class on the Celts and Slavs, their folklore and history, and the usages thereof in art. As disparate as those two peoples seem, they do have a lot of connections and shared history.This book synthesizes the shared history very well, being mostly an account of the author's archaeology in Kzhakhstan, but also a bit into Ireland, Russia, Turkey, China, and other places where the history of women in pre-history. Had this book been published at the time of my class, i [...]

    13. I found this book really fascinating. I haven't read a lot of books on anthropology so this is pretty new to me. But everything is explained really well, so I never felt lost. About the only thing I disliked were these pages explaining a topic in depth. Not that they were badly written, it was just the placement that bothered me. I would have to stop reading (since they often broke up paragraphs) read these, and find my way back to where I was. I kind of wish they were at the beginning or end of [...]

    14. From Mongolia to Ireland Dr. Davis-Kimball takes us through her journey looking for warrior women throughout history. From the Saka warrior-priestesses like the "Gold Woman" to the Irish Sheila-na-gigs she points out how patriarchal bias has dismissed and demonized strong women of history and legend. A fascinating journey through time and forgotten lands. With thorough scholarship and painstaking analysis Dr. Davis-Kimball has certainly furthered the exploration of this fascinating subject.

    15. This was a really interesting book, and it's clear that the author knows what she's talking about. My biggest quibble was the way that the book seemed to meander a bit, and the way that the focus shifted from "women in Central Asian nomadic societies" in the first half to "powerful women in several parts of the world." However, both parts were good. I recommend it, especially if you're interested in nomadic societies.

    16. 2010- An interesting read for those, like me, that know little about archaeology. Not only did the author write in an easily accessible style, she also had very interesting theories and made many discoveries about how women in the ancient past lived. The only gripe I have was that this book is probably a bit outdated now, and I'd like to learn more!

    17. A interesting look at the author's research and conclusions as she investigates the role of women in ancient cultures. I found this book to be enjoyable and easily accessible - even for a layman (or woman). Not sure if all of her conculsions are further supported by others' research - I will have to study more.

    18. It could be a very nice entry level book into the scytho-siberian cultures, except it has a lot of autobiographic stuff that might not be interesting to the reader. It was interesting to me, and I would've almost preferred a full autobiography.The last Irish chapter felt a bit out of place.

    19. This is a cool book. A lady who gets into the archaeology field fairly late in life specializes in studying the nomadic culutres of the Euro-Asian steppes and the position of women within the ancient cultures. Fascinating

    20. I really learned a lot from this book, as well as enjoyed the stories collected in it. Although, if you don't have a basic knowledge of archeaology and world history you will get lost quickly. I appreciated how much study the author put into it though, very nicely done.

    21. I was expecting this to have an introduction about the author and her archaeological career or something then chapters on the various warrior women. This was more about the author and her experiences with a little about the women of the title. It wasn't bad, just not what I expected.

    22. Sketchy - more like an archaeologist's adventures - didn't strike me as specialist enough, and she leaps from culture to culture.

    23. A very clear book that is complex enough to keep me very interested and learn much, but simple enough that I could understand.

    24. Interesting ideas, but the book really starts to wander near the end. More supporting evidence for or explanation of her ideas would have been nice also.
