Jacquetta Hawkes was born on 5 August 1910 in Cambridge 101 years ago today.
Her centenary year has seen many exciting developments as archaeologists, writers, scientists and artists discover or rediscover her work. The revised handlist (now online) will enable people to find out far more about her Archive at the University of Bradford, which captures her life, ideas, personality, style, friends and family in so much rich detail. We look forward to continuing to work with Jacquetta’s family, Dr Finn and many other interested people to spread the word about this extraordinary writer. We will be sharing many more stories from the Archive via this blog: there is so much more just waiting to be discovered.
