Charles Drew and Mortimer Wheeler

The survey of Maiden Castle, undertaken by Huntly Gordon with his theodolite, was the first comprehensive survey of the large earthworks of the site… … The heroic figure with a spade captures the moment in one of the first section drawings of modern excavation practice.
