Synonyms for Osbert Guy Stanhope Crawford in Free Thesaurus

had to read this book twice before writing this review. Is Bloody Old Britain a spoof? Did its awkward protagonist, the British archaeologist Osbert Guy Stanhope Crawford (1886-1957) really exist? Kitty Hauser offers a clue in her preface when she writes: "Would Crawford recognise himself in these pages? I do not know if I have found him. Nothing I have written is, as far as I know, not true . . . the fact is that the story told here is an allegory as much as a biography. It is an allegory of vision and blindness, of faith and its loss."

Crawford, Osbert Guy Stanhope (1886–1957), archaeologist

As aviation progressed during the 1920s and 1930s, explorers began to use the new technology to investigate previously inaccessible and unknown regions and aspects of Earth. Aerial surveys revealed lines and geometric patterns of ancient origin on the ground. One of the first to recognize these patterns and to initiate the field of aerial archaeology was the British archaeologist Osbert Guy Stanhope Crawford. During the 1920s and 1930s, he encouraged aerial photographers to document a wealth of sites for archaeological study in Britain and the Middle East.
