A British antiquarian, Stukeley (1687-1765) is considered one of the founders of the science of field archaeology. This distinction is based on his competent and pioneering archaeological fieldwork at Avebury and Stonehenge. Stukeley's interests were also quite diverse. He was interested in other aspects of British history, including the story of Robin Hood, wrote music for the flute and produced treatises on earthquakes and medical subjects. His above scarce work is a fascinating short treatise on earthquakes, their causes and possible connection to divine retribution.
