The blog shares the fascinating stories and achievements of female archaeologists, some well-known, many less so. Meet Dorothea Bate who discovered the Mallorcan mouse-goat, Jane Dieulafoy who got special permission to dress as a man, and a lovely photo of Harriet Boyd Hawes in her swivel chair.  Oh, and Mary Anning of course.  Jacquetta will feature soon!
