Raising Horizons: celebrating trowelblazing women

Our friends at Trowelblazers are working on an amazing project to celebrate women working in archaeology, geology and palaeontology in the past and present.  Raising Horizons, created in partnership with photographer Leonora Sanders, will be a multimedia exhibition which pairs a modern woman with a historic counterpart.

We are delighted that Jacquetta Hawkes is one of the trowelblazers.  Her partner is Dr Colleen Morgan of the University of York.  They have in common their “explorations of archaeology, its practice and meanings across many different channels, from academic articles to artistic endeavours”.  Find out more about both of them and the other trowelblazing partners in this blog post and this Guardian article about the project.

Help support Raising Horizons through the crowdfunding site Indiegogo.
