AdminHistoryMiss Dorothy N. Marshall, a native of Scotland, worked with Kathleen Kenyon at Sabratha, Libya, in 1951, and was Registrar for the Jericho Excavations every season from 1952 to 1958.

In "Dame Kathleen Kenyon: Digging Up the Holy Land", Miriam Davis described Marshall as "one of the most important and constant members" of the 1952 expedition to Jericho (Davis, p. 108).

She continued to assist Kenyon in Jerusalem as Registrar in 1962 and 1964 - 1966. Photographs and correspondence pertaining to the 1953 - 1956 seasons at Jericho have been sent to the Kenyon Jericho archive in the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Cambridge.

In November 1991, a day was held at Saint Hugh's celebrating the achievements of Kenyon. At the age of 91, Marshall was clearing out her possessions and was "delighted to give... the enclosed 5 books for [the] collection". The albums were not of use to Saint Hugh's or the organisers in the aftermath of the event and the records eventually passed to the Society for Libyan Studies.

Marshall died in her nineties.
