History of the Network: How it began ...

Therefore several students of archaeology founded in May 1991 the Network of Women in Archaeology. Previously there had only been local groups and one Symposium in Jan. 1991, with the title: “Feminism & Archaeology”.
The model for our network was the German “Network of Women in History”. This form allows a wide exchange of information and needs little organisational structures. Meanwhile about 100 women and institutions are members of our Network. Six conferences have taken place in Kiel, Tübingen, Stralsund, Berlin and Heilbronn. The newsletter is sent quarterly to all members. The list of members allows specific contacts between the women.
