Since October 2021, the Beyond Notability project has been researching women’s work in archaeology, history and heritage in Britain between 1870 and 1950. We are now in the final year of the project, and next month we will have our final International Women’s Day event: a full-day workshop at the Society of Antiquaries of London.

We have a range of speakers, working across heritage, theatre, and community engagement. They will all be speaking about how narrative, inclusion and women’s histories have been and are being incorporated into the work that they do.

Alongside this smorgasbord of talks, we will have another treat. We have been working with storyteller Vanessa Woolf since May last year. Having selected 5 women from our database of over 800, Vanessa has been working with us to think about, discuss and create four special stories about these women: Charlotte Stopes, Edith Blake, Jessie Mothersole, Elizabeth Hodgson, and Alice Gomme. Through these stories you will learn more about women’s work in archaeology, history and folklore in the UK and beyond.
