[William Stukeley]
November 7, 1687 - March 3, 1765
The Rev. Dr. William Stukeley was a medical doctor, Anglican priest, field archeologist and antiquarian.
Author of Stonehenge a temple restor'd to the British druids and Itinerarium curiosum: or, an account of the antiquities and remarkable curiosities in nature or art observed in travels through Great Britain ..., Stukeley is responsible for the popular identification of Stonehenge with the Druids, and the current interest in Druidism. Although a gifted field archaeologist, his interpretations and conclusions were highly imaginative.
