On Thursday 28 January 2010, Dr Christine Finn will give a lecture on Jacquetta Hawkes at the Society of Antiquaries. Dr Finn is Writer-Fellow at the J.B. Priestley Library, and is Jacquetta’s official biographer. Her talk, Excavating the excavator: Jacquetta Hawkes’s biography as archaeology, will compare the process of using the Hawkes Archive to write about Jacquetta with archaeological methods.
The image shows Christine doing just that, while unpacking the Archive on its arrival in Special Collections.
2010 is Jacquetta’s centenary, so there will be plenty more news about her and the archive, watch this space!
