William Buckland DD, FRS (1784-1856) was a theologian and scientist, who is widely regarded as the founder of the science of geology. A polymath, Buckland was the first person to identify and describe the dinosaur, which he called Megalosaurus. He was an older contemporary of Charles Darwin and played a central role in the ferment of ideas about the origins of the earth and of living things.
