Mapping Manning: The Man who Collected Oxfordshire


Project Description:

Mapping Manning brings together two sets of resources for the local history of Oxford and Oxfordshire:


- the detailed large-scale maps created by Percy Manning (1870-1917), on which he marked archaeological sites and finds – these continued in active use and were updated by the Ashmolean Museum after his death, until the late 1970s;

- the indexes and databases describing Percy Manning's collections in the Ashmolean Museum, Bodleian Libraries and Pitt Rivers Museum.
