Letter to the Editor. On the Remains of Stonehenge

Jonathan Oldbuck


Letter, Rejoinder


Geology, Archaeology

    In response to an earlier article on Stonehenge, Oldbuck (the titular character in Walter Scott's The Antiquary) makes various observations, concluding with a correction of the earlier writer's assertion that the stones had been brought from Purbeck. He offers his credentials as 'a geologist and rambler through the isle of Purbeck' (301).
