Event Details

Celebrate women in archaeology, palaeontology and geology – by creating and improving Wikipedia articles!

 19th October, 10.30am-5pm

Natural History Museum, London 

 

***

 

Join TrowelBlazers (trowelblazers.tumblr.com) in a one-day Wikipedia editathon dedicated to improving the Wikipedia pages of key women in archaeology, palaeontology and geology.

 

Women we intend to focus on include: Dorothea Bate, Dorothy Garrod, Gertrude Caton-Thompson, Elinor W. Gardner, Etheldred Bennett, Nina Layard, Margaret Murray, Helen Muir-Wood, Grace Crowfoot

Join in online here (use the talk page for discussion!):

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/Natural_History_Museum_and_Science_Museum/Trowelblazers

There will be practical training in how to edit a wikipedia page, support and resources on-hand to make editing easier, and we’ve even lined up a team of experts (biographers and historians) to talk about trowelblazing women and to lend their expertise.


There will also be a unique opportunity to see fossils from the NHM collections collected by these pioneering women - fossils not normally on display to the general public!

 

This event is open to those new to Wikipedia and to experienced contributors.  Female editors are especially encouraged to attend.

 

Help us improve the visibility of a host of forgotten women in science! We can think of no better way to celebrate International Archaeology Day, Earth Science Week AND Ada Lovelace Day. 

 

** Please bring reference material and a laptop if you have them **
