Full text not available from this repository.


Hodder Westropp wrote what is probably the first Handbook of Archaeology ever produced, added to Petrie’s work on Irish Round Towers, and defined the term Mesolithic. Yet he is virtually unknown and is given only a brief mention in modern scholarship (Daniel, 1967, 260; Wilkins, 1959, 130-1). The purpose of this article is to provide a brief biography of this remarkable figure and to look in greater detail at some of the major events of his career.
