FROM PICTURES TO STORIES: Traces of female PhD graduates from the Department of Prehistoric Archaeology, University of Tübingen, Germany

After presenting a short summary of the history of the department itself, this article deals with the biographies of three of these female archaeologists. Each biography also contains an excursus on topics, which, in our view, are characteristic of the woman's life or provide necessary background information. Additionally, the methods utilized and the problems resulting from our research are discussed. The chapter ends with a critical reflection about the ongoing process of 'excavating women' with the help of oral history.
