Breaking Ground presents the stories of twelve fascinating women - including Jane Dieulafoy, Gertrude Bell, and Dorothy Garrod - and their immeasurable contributions to the development and progress of Old World archaeology. Each essay examines the life of a pioneer archaeologist in the early days of the discipline, tracing her path from education in the classics to travel and exploration and eventual international recognition, as they broke ground both as women and as archaeologists.
