Edward Augustus Freeman [2 August 1823/ 16 March 1892] was an English historian, architectural artist, liberal politician during the late-19th-century heyday of William Gladstone, and a one-time candidate for Parliament. He held the position of Regius Professor of Modern History at Oxford, where he tutored Arthur Evans; later he and Evans would be activists in the Balkan uprising of Bosnia and Herzegovina [1874/1878] against the Ottoman Empire. After the marriage of his daughter Margaret to Evans, he and Evans collaborated on the fourth volume of his History of Sicily. He was a prolific writer, publishing 239 distinct works. One of his best known is History of the Norman Conquest [published 1867/1876]. Both he and Margaret died before Evans purchased the land, where he would excavate the Palace of Knossos, for which Evans is much better known today. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
