1 Heywood Sumner: Artist and Archaeologist - Talk by Adrian Green

George Heywood Maunoir Sumner (1853 – 1940) was a man of many talents. In the earlier part of his life he was a leading member of the Arts and Crafts movement.
In 1897 due to the ill health of his wife, he moved from London to Bournemouth and then the New Forest. For the next forty years he studied local natural history,
geology, folklore and archaeology.
This talk is an introduction to Sumner and his interests in both art and archaeology.
