Ormonde Maddock Dalton

Ormonde Maddock Dalton (1866-1945) was a British museum curator and archaeologist.[1] Though very much an all-rounder, his main expertise was in medieval art. He usually published as O. M. Dalton, but also wrote under the pseudonym W. Compton Leith.[1]

From 1921 to 1928 he was Keeper of the British and Medieval Antiquities Department at the British Museum.[2] As well as the books below, he wrote a stream of articles and short books for the museum.


  • Handbook to the Ethnographical Collections (1910) with Thomas Athol Joyce.[3]
  • Byzantine Art and Archaeology (1911), handbook of art and artefacts.[4]
  • East Christian Art (1925).[1]
