William Stukeley (1687-1765)
British antiquarian, known as the "Archdruid." Best known for his competent archaeological fieldwork at Avebury and Stonehenge. He mistakenly attributed those ancient monuments to the Druids, hence his nickname, and some have unjustly judged all his other conclusions to be guilty by association. His account of his travels and work is to be found in "Itinerarium Curiosum" (1724).

The illustration at right, dated 1721, is Stukeley's impression of the original layout of the stones at Avebury.
