By Kaiser Alan

The 1931 excavation season at Olynthus, Greece, ushered a sea switch in how archaeologists research fabric culture—and used to be the nexus of 1 of the main egregious (and underreported) situations of plagiarism within the background 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 college files, to color a desirable photo of gender, strength, and archaeology within the early 20th century.

Using Ellingson’s images and letters as a consultant, Kaiser brings alive the excavations led through David Robinson and recounts how the unearthing of personal homes—rather than public spaces—emerged as a method to ascertain the day by day of historic lifestyles 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 lecturers have been complicit within the theft.
