William Stukeley FRS, FRCP, FSA (7 November 1687 – 3 March 1765) was an Anglican clergyman and English antiquarian who pioneered the archaeological investigation of the prehistoric monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury. He was friends with Isaac Newton and was among Newton's first biographers. Stukeley was also involved with Freemasonry and instrumental in British scholarship's acceptance of Charles Bertram's forged Description of Britain. Despite his Anglican faith and church offices, he was ordained as a "druid" and was a leading figure in Neo-Druidry. Nonetheless, he has been remembered as "probably... the most important of the early forerunners of the discipline of archaeology" for his habit of going out personally to examine and explore ancient sites.
