It is our intention that the Breaking Ground web site serve as a living record of the contributions made by women in the field of Old World archaeology, and that it grow over time.

If you would like to submit the name of someone we have overlooked, please do so below. (At present, this database only contains biographies of scholars already deceased.) And if you have any other comments or suggestions, we'd love to hear them.

Please specify (in the Comments field) why you feel a particular archaeologist ought to be included, and also any suggestions you might have for who might be qualified to write her biography; if appropriate, consider writing a biography yourself!

We look forward to hearing from you.
