Women at the BSA

One of the strands of this history will be the contribution of women at the BSA from Eugénie Sellers Strong onwards. In the pre First World War period most of the women had studied at Girton College, Cambridge - and then Newnham College. The work of Winifred Lamb who excavated between the wars at Mycenae, Sparta, Thermi, Antissa and then in Anatolia will also be explored.

For some of the women at the BSA see "Breaking Ground: Women in Old World Archaeology".
