The famed "Saxon Nymph," Elizabeth Elstob was a major figure in 18th-century Anglo-Saxon antiquarianism at a time when education was often closed to women. Born in 1683, she was raised by an uncle who discouraged her education. Nevertheless, she eventually became proficient in eight languages and made major contributions to the field.
