Discovering Dorothea

Discovering Dorothea

Discovering Dorothea is the new edition of Karolyn Schindler’s remarkable biography, re-issued due to poplar demand.


Shindler tells the story of Dorothea Bate, one of the pioneering palaeontologists of the 20th Century.


Shindler revokes Dorothea’s indomitable spirit of adventure in this compelling read, as she documents everything from the first steps in her career at the Natural History Museum, to her forays in excavation in war zones.
