Dr Robert Munro (1835-1920) was an Edinburgh graduate and a distinguished medical practitioner.
A keen archaeologist, he retired from practice in 1885 to devote himself to archaeology and, with Lord Abercromby, founded the tradition of international prehistoric archaeology in Edinburgh.
In 1882 he published Ancient Scottish Lake-Dwellings or Crannogs and, in 1888, The Lake-Dwellings of Europe.
He established the Munro Trust in 1910, at the University of Edinburgh, bringing distinguished international scholars to the University to deliver lectures in the fields of anthropology and archaeology.
