HAI gorgeous illustration from 1960s Ladybird book Stone Age Man In Britain, with a woman archaeologist in all her glory! Surprisingly progressive of you, no?

NO. Not really. Because, you know what? Women – many, many women – have been wielding their trowels and awesome powers of discovery since archaeology and the like was invented.

Awesome, trowel-wielding women, with this site WE SALUTE YOU!

Illustration by John Kenney, from L. du Garde Peach (1961). Stone Age Man In Britain. A Ladybird Book. Wills & Hepworth Ltd., Loughborough.
