A more precise definition for the context of an archaeological attribute is the totality of the relevant environment, where 'relevant' refers to a significant relationship to the object - that is, a relationship necessary for discerning the object's meaning
the context will depend on the types of questions being asked.
(Hodder 1986: 139)
The current tendency to contextualise and deconstruct gender roles has made it extremely hard for museum designers to present gender and related issues in an educational and visually powerful way without being subjected to severe criticism of simplification. The engendering of museum exhibitions has therefore become difficult. In particular, the designers have not been able to take discussions within archaeology as a guide for their activities, and it has proved necessary for museums to develop their own separate field of debate.
