Female Archaeologist of the week: Margaret Murray

Margaret Murray was a pioneering force in the development of Egyptology. The first female archaeology lecturer in Britain, she was a mentor to other women in the field, and a supporter of the suffragette movement.

In her autobiography, "My First One Hundred Years" (1963), she wrote "young males, even though brilliantly clever, should not pit their wits against an organisation run by women."
