The classic study of prostitution in cities by Dr. William Sanger is reviewed, along with Christine Stansell’s study of working women and the sale of sex in New York City. Classes of brothels and the reasons for prostitution in cities are reviewed. The discussion moves to reviewing the archaeology of brothels and considering how lives, experiences, and performance of prostitutes are reflected by artifacts.
