Synopsis: Dorothy Garrod opened many doors; not only was she the first female professor at Cambridge University, but she illuminated - and in some cases initiated - some of prehistoric archaeology's most central issues. The quiet yet self possessed woman was best known as a fieldworker, often venturing into dangerous regions such as Kurdistan. Her first and highly successful excavation revealed fragments of Neanderthal fossils in Gibralter. This volume reviews modern research on this site, as well as exploring other issues which interested the Disney Professor of Archaeology: hominid remains from Mount Carmel; Palaeolithic sites in the Zagros Mountains, Bulgaria and Britain; and the cultural evidence for the beginning of Near Eastern food production, which Garrod called Natufian. Also included are papers concerned with her life, background and published work. The topics' span and continuing relevance are testament to Dorothy Garrod's remarkable character and great achievements.

Review: This is a refreshing book: one that Garrod would have understood. Notably post-processual, the articles are, without exception, clearly and concisely written. They concentrate of bringing Garrods work up-to-date without debating the dogmas which have come to characterize so much writing on the origins of modern humans, the early Upper Palaeolithic and the beginnings of agriculture.' (Jill Cook Antiquaries Journal, Vol. 81, 2001)
