The British archaeologist, Sir Richard Hoare, 2nd Baronet (a term used to convey noble distinction), was half of the duo that did the first recorded excavation of Stonehenge in 1798, and again 1810. Hoare was an adherent to the form of antiquarianism that was popular among scholars of history of the day. He adopted the motto that encapsulated the movement: "We speak from facts not theory."

Hoare's mausoleum is at St. Peter's Church in Stourton, Wiltshire.
