Women in the Archaeology & History of West Norfolk
The West Norfolk Archaeological Society was founded in November 1967. To celebrate the 50th anniversary and to acknowledge how society has become more inclusive since that date, a conference in November 2017 was addressed by women speakers. A local cohort of heritage professionals and amateur researchers were invited to speak on their own inspirations, about famous women in the history of west Norfolk and of archaeological projects in which they had been involved.
Women in the Archaeology & History of West Norfolk is a collection of the presentations made at that conference, giving all a chance to share in the research and the presentations of the day. With brief biographies of all the speakers and a short history of the Society, it serves as both a record of the day and an introduction to many areas of further interest.
