Galina Ivanovna Matveeva 2600:6C67:1C00:5F7E:F8C3:7FAD:52C:189C (talk) 13:04, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I do not see an article on the English Wikipedia for that person. Can you point us to an article on another language Wikipedia about her, or to reliable sources that establish her status as a notable archaeologist? - Donald Albury 17:03, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Springer Verlag says Galina Ivanovna Matveeva (1933–2008) (Fig. 1) was a Professor and Chair of Russian History at the Samara State University, candidate of historical sciences (scientific degree Ph.D.), founder of archaeological scientific school in Samara State University, President of the Samara Archaeological Society, and the author of more than 120 scientific works and manuals.""Here is her obit in an archaeology journal: Памяти Галины Ивановны Матвеевой (1933-2008) (arheologija.ru) 2600:6C67:1C00:5F7E:F8C3:7FAD:52C:189C (talk) 19:29, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
OK, I have added her. It looks like there should be enough material out there for an article about her, although mainly in Russian. - Donald Albury 20:35, 2 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Nandadeva Wijesekera[edit]

This person's name was recently removed because there is no article about that person and no outside citation. How-ever, the name is in a lot of Wikipedia articles. If any-one (such as the person who originally added the name) feels there should be an article, please write one. Then the name could be re-added.

Longacre[edit]

I have re-added the leading New Archaeologist Longacre with different references, though I don't know why Thoughtco (mentioned in a Wikipeida article about the company that owns it) should be considered unreliable. Kdammers (talk) 03:39, 11 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I don't know about Thoughtco (previously About.com) in general, but most of their archaeology content was written by archaeologist K. Kris Hirst and is absolutely reliable. – Joe (talk) 10:02, 11 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Datuk Dr Siti Zuraina Abdul Majid[edit]

She is called a historian in this article which lauds her archaeological work: https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2022/09/833048/renowned-historian-honoured-archaeological-discoveries . Should we add her (She doesn' have a Wik page)? Kdammers (talk) 18:31, 22 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
