TrowelBlazers

I ran across the TrowelBlazers Tumbler today, which is “a celebration of women archaeologists, palaeontologists and geologists who have been doing awesome work for far longer, and in far greater numbers, than most people realise.”

The women who maintain the tumbler, are an archaeologist, a dental anthropologist, a paleobiologist, and a zooarchaeologist. This team of scientists also have a blog that is definitely worth checking out.
