Check out a great new blog: TROWELBLAZERS: “Awesome trowel-wielding women: WE SALUTE YOU! archaeology | palaeontology | geology”.
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!
