The history of archaeology has frequently been divided into “great man” and “great woman” narratives. This paper will discuss relations and relationships between men and women in the history of archaeology. It will concentrate particularly on George Horsfield and Agnes Conway, who married (in middle age) in 1932 and together worked at two of Jordan’s most famous sites, the stunning Nabataean city of Petra and the remarkable remains of Roman Jerash. The Horsfields’ archives offer a unique insight into a comparatively modern marriage, where gender roles, class divisions and ethnic identities were in constant flux.
