Well they have forgotten Jacquetta Hawkes. Excellent writer on the 'archaeological imagination' and she dug as well.
I would have thought nowadays that there was an equality between male and female archaeologists, whilst the earlier female archaeologists often had to come in on the coat tails of their husbands sadly.

As for Mary Beard being punished for her political views, that is of course an absolute disgrace, she seems to have taken it with her usual pinch of humour.
