Beyond Notability

Project overview

Beyond Notability is a three year research project is exploring the histories of women active in archaeology, history and heritage as revealed in the archives of the Society of Antiquaries of London and the Royal Archaeological Institute.

The project brings together academic researchers with expertise in intellectual and social history, information science and digital humanities in partnership with the Society of Antiquaries of London in order to recover the broad landscape of women’s work in archaeology, history, and heritage and their intellectual networks in 19th and 20th-century Britain via detailed investigation of two significant cultural-institutional archives.

We will write a new history of archaeology, history, and heritage in 19th- and 20th-century Britain, which will reveal the extent of women’s contributions to the shaping, practice and institutionalisation of these fields.
