Jacquetta’s official biographer is Dr Christine Finn, Writer Fellow at the J.B. Priestley Library.  Christine is herself an archaeologist and writer, and shares Jacquetta’s humanistic and passionate response to the deep past.  She compares the process of studying Jacquetta’s Archive to archaeology, going through layers and recreating past lives.  As part of our celebrations of Jacquetta’s centenary in 2010, Christine will lecture on this theme at the Society of Antiquaries on 28 January 2010.
