Transition

John Hodgson's poem Transition is inspired by a pair of prehistoric necklaces unearthed during excavations led by pioneering archaeologist Dorothy Garrod (1892-1968) at Mount Carmel in Israel in the 1930s.

The necklaces are now in the collection of the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Garrod became the first female professor in the history of the University of Cambridge.
