Women's Archive of Wales
On Saturday 28th March I went to Wrexham to the Wales Women's History Roadshow run by Women's Archive of Wales. Cynthia Burek of Chester University,a geologist, who is the first Professor of Geoconservation in the world gave a talk on the role of women in the history of geology. the title was " The Role of Women in the Development of Geology in Wales." The dedication and perseverance of these women in this field dominated by men was inspiring.Simply moving around Wales in Victorian times would be major feat.
