Join us for Season 5, Episode 6 of the Peabody Diggin’ In series – TrowelBlazers: Uncovering New Networks

Started in 2013, TrowelBlazers has grown from a website to a multimedia effort that crosses the academic-popular culture divide. From the outset, TrowelBlazers was committed to highlighting the discoveries and efforts of women in archaeology, paleontology, and geology--or as we like to call them, the "digging sciences". In fields of research that have so typically been dominated by the narratives of "great men", we found that women had made substantial contributions of their own; but instead of embodying the 'lone wolf' archetype, women were part of complex research networks populated by many other women. This revelation led us to consider the extent to which many of the exciting new perspectives we were finding were dominated by already privileged women, and challenged us to continue working to move beyond this limited view in our efforts to explore the contributions of women to these fields.
