Ladies of the Field: Early Women Archaeologists and Their Search for Adventure

Amanda Adams

Ladies of the Field: Early Women Archaeologists and Their Search for Adventure by Amanda AdamsThe first women archaeologists were Victorian era adventurers who felt most at home when farthest from it. Canvas tents were their domains, hot Middle Eastern deserts their gardens of inquiry and labor. Thanks to them, prevailing ideas about feminine nature — soft, nurturing, submissive — were upended.

Amanda Adams takes us with them as they hack away at underbrush under a blazing sun, battle swarms of biting...
