Description - Excavating Women by Margarita Diaz-Andreu

This work discusses the careers of women archaeologists such as Dorothy Garrod, Hannah Rydh and Marija Gimbutas, all of whom are now famous within the field of archaeology. It also focuses on lesser-known personalities who have done important archaeological work. The collection spans the earliest days of archaeology to the present, telling the stories of women from Scandinavia, Mediterranean Europe, Britain, Germany and Poland. The chapters examine women's contributions to archaeology in the context of other, often socio-political, factors that affected their lives. It examines issues such as women's increased involvement in archaeological work during and after the two World Wars, and why so many women found it more acceptable to work outside of their native lands.
