Dr Jennifer Howes (British Library) – Colin MacKenzie’s Adventures in India (1784-1821)
Between 1784 and 1821, Colin Mackenzie, India’s first Surveyor General, collected a notoriously complex archive of manuscripts and drawings. Gathered by both European and Indian draftsmen, the drawings give a fascinating account of India’s monuments, people and landscapes during the Early Colonial Period.
