If I create a fictional archeologist I will probably allude to one, two or all three of these women, within the fictional name. All three lived in Florida, at one point, and all three made a name for themselves.
Agnes Milowka an Australian underwater photographer,author, maritime archaeologist, cave explorer, and technical diver. While living in Florida, she explored and laid line across a number of cave systems, the most significant of which was Mission Spring. She and James Toland made the connection between Peacock Springs and Baptizing Spring, Florida adding over 3,000 metres of passage. In her TV series, ‘Agnes Milowka Project,’ she used underwater cave footage shot by the Florida-born diver, Wes Skiles, for Karst Productions.
Susan “Sue” Hendrickson (born December 2, 1949) is an American paleontologist. Hendrickson Vertebrate paleontologist. ,palaeontologist, marine archaeologist. She is best known for her discovery of “Sue,” the largest T. rex specimen ever found.
