Woman in Time

Celebrating Jacquetta Hawkes

Woman in Time

Waterstones Bradford, 18 March 2015, 7-8 pm


Join Tori Herridge and me (Alison Cullingford) for Woman in Time, an exploration of humanity from its earliest days through to the turbulent middle years of the 20th Century.  We use poetry and spoken word performance to tell stories of three women. One of these women died, one went on to great things, and one disappeared.  Their lives intersected on one day 80 years ago …

Part of British Science Week.  Find out more on their website and register via eventbrite here.

Volunteer with me at the Natural History Museum

I’m recruiting a volunteer to work with me at the Natural History Museum, 1 day a week (preferably wednesday) for approximately 4 months, to help piece together the excavation history of Ghar Dalam Cave in Malta (a key site for Pleistocene insular dwarf elephants, hippo and deer). It would suit someone with an interest in palaeontology and evolution, and also an interest in the history of science. You must be able to read and interpret maps and diagrams of stratigraphical sections.
Applications & enquiries must be made via the NHM recruitment system. To apply, follow this link [NHM Jobs], and then select ‘Cave of Darkness’ for my project.

Woman In Time — my contribution to British Science Week!

If you’re in, or around, or indeed willing to travel to Bradford on the 18th March, come to Waterstones Bradford in the beautiful Wool Exchange to hear Alison Cullingford and me tell the story of three women: British archaeologist, poet and CND founder Jacquetta Hawkes, Palestinian archaeologist Yusra, and the neanderthal woman known as Tabun 1.

The event is completely free**, but you do need to book tickets so that we can let Waterstones know the numbers.

More about the event, and tickets, see: http://woman-in-time.eventbrite.com

With huge thanks to the British Science Association, who granted TrowelBlazers a £500 Community Grant to develop and put on this event.



**John Ruskin said that the Bradford Wool Exchange “…represented the worst form of exploitative capitalism.” Hopefully he’d approve of our non-profit use of the space 150 years later… 😉
