Check out Trowelblazers

If you’re interested in the history of archaeology, you are going to really love “Trowelblazers”, a Tumblr site with short biographies of female trailblazers of archaeology.

Like most good Tumblr accounts, this one has some great pictures. The post on Maeve Leakey has a classic photo from the Turkana Basin Institute, and the Gertrude Bell post is full of information and links.
