Radio Highlight: Past Personal

This Sunday (9 August) on Radio 3, Jacquetta’s biographer Dr Christine Finn explores why this public figure, who defined archaeology for the post-war generation, was forgotten for so long – only now being rediscovered.  The Hawkes Archive and me (Alison Cullingford) as its curator feature as part of the story.

The programme also  includes contributions from well-known archaeologists (Barry Cunliffe, Martin Henig, Michael Shanks) and from Jacquetta’s family (her son Nicolas and her step-son Tom Priestley).
