This also has to do with the fact that I have been writing a lot -- there was a book, which I may have unobtrusively mentioned, but also some very fun pieces while wearing my other hat as part of Team TrowelBlazers.  I am very fond of this piece in February's History Today, so if you have a chance take a look.



There are jokes about how awful the poetry in 'Girl's Own' magazines of the Victorian era is; if you want to see how I managed to shoehorn that into a story about heroines of the digging sciences, you'll have to read the damn thing ;)

As we ramped up to the Raising Horizons launch (more on which over at TrowelBlazers) we've had a great run of pieces celebrating women in science then and now -- check out Becky Wragg Sykes' piece for Current Archaeology now on newstands, or our joint effort in the Guardian.

Suzie and a decent amount of champagne help us keep up with the latest TrowelBlazing news.
