The Institute of Archaeology at Oxford University and the Archaeology
Data Service / AHDS Archaeology are delighted to promote a newly
completed image archive for archaeology,  the HMJ Underhill Archive:

http://ads.ahds.ac.uk/catalogue/projArch/underhill_na_2004/index.cfm and
http://www.arch.ox.ac.uk/archives/underhill/

Henry Michael John Underhill (1855-1920) was an Oxford antiquarian and
magic lantern slide painter who had wide-ranging interests: entomology
and microscopy, the anthropology of folk-tales and British archaeology
from prehistory to the vernacular architecture of windmills. For many
years he was a prominent member of two Oxford amateur societies which
served as vehicles for intellectual communication between interested
Oxford citizens and members of the University: The Oxfordshire Natural
History Society and Field Club, and The Oxford Camera Club.

Underhill's antiquarian collection is now in the care of the Institute
of Archaeology at Oxford University who have now digitised an important
selection of these slides.  The online collection represents 78
hand-painted glass slides and 17 photographic glass lantern slides.
They are mainly concerned with three topics: The Stone Circles of
Britain; The Roman Cities of Britain; and Windmills.  However, as
artefacts in their own right the images document the development of
photography and imaging in archaeology as well as HMJ Underhill's
intellectual and social milieu.

The digital images are served from the Institute of Archaeology in
Oxford, and are archived for preservation by ADS/AHDS Archaeology.
