Maggie and the Bishops 1/5

Margaret Benson was one of the first women to study at Oxford University, and the first woman to receive official permission to excavate in Egypt.

Her father was the Archbishop of Canterbury. This letter to her partner Janet Gourlay was written from the archbishop's palace in London, England, while Maggie was between archaeological digs.

More tomorrow!
