Science Quotes by Nigel Forbes Dennis (1 quote)
[Agatha Christie] is fond of quoting the witty wife who once said, an archaeologist is the best husband any woman can have; the older she gets, the more interested he is in her.
— Nigel Forbes Dennis
In Nigel Dennis, 'Genteel Queen of Crime: Agatha Christie Puts Her Zest for Life Into Murder', Life (14 May 1956), 40, No. 20, 102. Christies (second) husband, Max Mallowan, was an archaeologist. However, a biographical source states that Christie disavowed making the remark. So, it must be regarded as a funny quote of uncertain origin.
