As Jacquetta Hawkes writes: "Agatha did not see her own renown as any bar to sharing in her husband's work. From the first she took a full part in every one of Max's excavations in Syria and Irqaa, enduring discomforts and finding comedy in all such disasters as an archaeologist is heir to." 025468
