This #WomensHistoryMonth, explore the stories of nine pioneering women who have inspired members of Museum staff in our blog post.

Marguerite Naville (1852–1930) was a Swiss Egyptologist. Naville copied and inked inscriptions, reliefs and monuments, developing new techniques that reflected both the state of a monument and its conservation.

This is her illustration of two stone blocks showing a barge transporting obelisks from the lower terrace of the temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari.

Marguerite Naville was nominated by Marie Vandenbeusch, Project curator, Egypt and Sudan. Read other stories of pioneering women including archaeologists, printmakers, scientists and designers selected by members of staff in this blog post: http://ow.ly/QGUj30rAIex
