The 1931 excavation season at Olynthus, Greece, ushered a sea switch in how archaeologists research fabric culture—and was once the nexus of 1 of the main egregious (and underreported) instances of plagiarism within the historical past of classical archaeology. Alan Kaiser attracts at the deepest scrapbook that budding archaeologist Mary Ross Ellingson compiled in the course of that dig, in addition to her own correspondence and fabrics from significant collage documents, to color a desirable photo of gender, strength, and archaeology within the early 20th century.

Using Ellingson’s pictures and letters as a advisor, Kaiser brings alive the excavations led by way of David Robinson and recounts how the unearthing of non-public homes—rather than public spaces—emerged as a method to ascertain the daily of historic existence in Greece. yet as Archaeology, Sexism, and Scandal sincerely demonstrates, a darker tale lurks underneath the smiling faces and funny stories: one the place Robinson stole Ellingson’s phrases and insights for his personal, and the place fellow teachers have been complicit within the theft.
