*** Hi! I'm currently taking a short break from touring, but I'd still love to hear from you if this experience piques your interest - please do get in touch! ***

The British Museum is full of objects representing women throughout history, but a lot of these stories require a little more research and tenacity to uncover. On this tour, you'll meet kings and queens, authors, artists, scientists, sex workers, activists and generals - all of whom shaped our world, and all of whom were female.

I've used my inside access to the Museum collections and libraries to put together a truly global tour of women's stories. There are more than a dozen women we'll see on this tour, all from different times and places, and all of whose legacies are important contributions to the Museum and to history.

*A note about scheduling! If I haven't listed any slots for this experience that you are able to attend, just get in touch with me and we'll see if we can work something out.

I'm a trained archaeologist (BA and MA, preparing a PhD), classics teacher, and staunch feminist who spent two years at the British Museum as a gallery assistant. I still run a variety of tours in the museum, as well as occasionally giving gallery talks. I love to spend my time wandering around the galleries and reading about all the less-famous objects people don't always notice. I also run Beyond Rosetta, an Instagram devoted to the hidden gems of the collection.

Donde estarás

I'll take you round the galleries and introduce you to some of the fascinating women of the BM. While we'll be in the Museum the whole time, we'll move through time and space to visit everywhere from Nigeria to Australia to Mexico.

This tour was really interesting and engaging. I’d never visited the museum before but found it a really good introduction to the collection through the history of women. The host was really friendly and welcoming and very clearly knew the subject very well. It was like going round the museum with somebody you knew. The stories were also fascinating and well chosen, especially as they covered a broad range of time periods and cultures. I’d recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a different kind of tour.

We had a great time on Allison's tour - she has an amazing depth of knowledge about her subject and told us some fascinating stories! Her work was incredibly intersectional and she made a huge effort to represent women from all over the world. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, felt very well looked after and loved Allison's company! Would 100% recommend to anyone interested!

Allison is the English person you dream of meeting. Brilliant, passionate and expressive in a down-to-earth personal way. She is a gem. We had a few hours to see the world from her perspective and are very grateful for the opportunity!!!

Allison is a passionnate and wonderful, lively lecturer and story teller about the remarkable women at the British museum. She told us on the most brilliant and vivid way the stories of these extraordinary women from different centuries and continents who had had an amazing impact on their civilisations and on their worlds. If Allison is at a great lecturer, historian she is also a very warm, open minded and talented person. I hope she will some day write a book about these remarkable women at the British museum. The two hours were just fascinating I learned a lot from Allison. I recommend this tour very highly.
