Event Description

The Museum’s Researcher in World Archaeology, Alice Stevenson, will introduce the Archive display of photographs taken by the pioneering archaeologist Dorothy Garrod (1892–1968).The Museum holds about 750 negatives taken by Garrod,mostly relating toarchaeological research in present-day Israel in the early 1930s. This fieldwork was ground-breaking and Garrod went on to become the first woman to be elected to a professorship at either Oxford or Cambridge. This talk will not only provide an overview of Garrod’s career as seen through the Museum’s photographic and archaeological collections, but will also discuss the influences and teamwork upon which her achievements were based.
