Mary Boyle (1881-1974): the Abbé Breuil’s faithful fellow-worker

14 October 2016

Abstract

This paper looks at the life and work of Mary Elizabeth Boyle, a Scotswoman and poet who by chance found her way into archaeology, firstly through meeting and working with Miles Burkitt and then, most importantly, by her encounter in 1920 with the Abbé Henri Breuil, the famous French prehistorian, whose companion and aide she became for the final 37 years of his life.
