Stonehenge and the Ashmolean

 

Aerial photographs from the Major Allen collection

Today aerial photography is a well-established method of archaeological survey. One of the pioneers of this survey technique was Major G.W. Allen from Oxford. The complete archive of his aerial photographs is held by the Antiquities Department at the Ashmolean Museum. The photographs of the Stonehenge area were taken between 1933-1936.
