Enjoyed that, thanks tjj.

Loads of great women archaeos working at the moment, including Sue Greaney who is mentioned in the article - we picked up her revised guide to Carn Euny and Chysauster in the summer.

Probably a bit unfair to single out one of the current multitude of excellence, but I'm a huge fan of Dr Rachel Pope at Liverpool uni, she has been excavating hillforts, particularly the excellent Penycloddiau in the Clwydian hills. She's also a big advocate of women's rights in archaeology, pushing against sexism and workplace harassment which seem regrettably common in that field.
