Readership: For students, scholars, and the general reader interested in historical biographies, the history of archaeology, and archaeological theory.
Lydia C. Carr, Independent scholar
L. C. Carr took her D.Phil at Oxford in 2008, where her dissertation focused on Tessa Verney Wheeler's life and work. This is her first book.
"... A thoughtful analysis and a good read." - Margarita Diaz-Andreu, Times Higher Education
"This is, primarily, that too rare thing, a sensitive and convincing biography of an archaeologist ... Carr explains that her task is not to explore or defend the concept of women in archaeology. While the book is informed with a social and academic feminist awareness, it takes care not to exploit Verney Wheeler to promote an agenda." - Mike Pitts, British Archaeology
