Archaeology, Sexism, and Scandal: The Long


The 1931 excavation season at Olynthus, Greece, ushered a sea change in how archaeologists study material cultureand was the nexus of one of the most egregious (and underreported) cases of plagiarism in the history of classical archaeology. Alan Kaiser draws on the private scrapbook that budding archaeologist Mary Ross Ellingson compiled during that dig, as well as her personal correspondence and materials from major university archives, to paint a fascinating picture of gender, power, and archaeology in the early twentieth century.
Using Ellingsons photographs and letters as a guide, Kaiser brings alive the excavations led by David Robinson and recounts how the unearthing of private homesrather than public spacesemerged as a means to examine the day-to-day of ancient life in Greece. But as Archaeology, Sexism, and Scandal clearly demonstrates, a darker story lurks beneath the smiling faces and humorous tales: one where Robinson stole Ellingsons words and insights for his own, and where fellow academics were complicit in the theft.
