John Lubbock

John Lubbock, 1st Baron Avebury PC (Privy Councilor), FRS (Fellow of the Royal Society) (30 April 1834 – 28 May 1913), known as Sir John Lubbock, 4th Baronet from 1865 until 1900, was a polymath and Liberal Member of Parliament. He was a banker and worked with his family’s company, but was also involved with entomology, botany, biology, archaeology, and ethnography. He helped establish archaeology as a scientific discipline, and was also influential with nineteenth-century debates concerning evolutionary theory.
