Buckland lecturing at the Ashmolean Museum, 1822. British geologist William Buckland (1784-1856) is displaying some of the fossils he found in the UK. These included the skull of a cave hyena, and nautiloid and ammonite fossils. Buckland also studied the geological and fossil history of Kirkdale Cave, which he proved had been a hyena den. It was this work that saw him awarded the Royal Society's Copley Medal. Buckland was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, and was Canon of Christ Church, and Professor of Geology and Mineralogy at the University of Oxford. Illustration from 'The life and correspondence of William Buckland' (1894).
