Women in Archaeology

Prior to it’s opening in the spring of 1971, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology’s collections had to be gathered. These collections, the library, archives, and archaeological artifacts, existed prior to the physical building in which they now reside. But where and how were they accumulated? History easily remembers some of the men associated with the formation of the Lab for they are its namesakes. History, though, seems to have glossed over that women were just as important in the foundation of Archaeology in Indiana.

Women in Archaeology highlights the work of women at the Glenn A. Black Laboratory through a series of photographs.
