... A thoughtful analysis and a good read. (Margarita Diaz-Andreu, Times Higher Education)
This is, primarily, that too rare thing, a sensitive and convincing biography of an archaeologist ... Carr explains that her task is not to explore or defend the concept of women in archaeology. While the book is informed with a social and academic feminist awareness, it takes care not to exploit Verney Wheeler to promote an agenda. (Mike Pitts, British Archaeology)

Roman fortifications and settlements. Dying young from a botched operation, Tessa Verney Wheeler left a legacy of accomplishment and perseverance that any woman, or man, would be proud to emulate today. Her story is told with passion and vigor that matches its mastery of subject.
