Plot shifted his focus towards archaeology in the 1686 publication of his second book, The Natural History of Staffordshire. The book contains a wonderful heraldic map, prints of the then principal houses of the county as well as prints of items that interested Dr Plot. Sadly, the quality of the prints has caused many copies of this marvelous book to be broken up. It is a book which will be interest all historians and collectors, but I recommend it to all.
A natural history of Staffordshire was written by Professor Robert Plot LLD (. 640 d. 1696) there are many references that allude to him being the ‘keeper’ of the Ashmolean Museum and a Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford. Prof Plot handed down a very remarkable and valuable revelation, Crop Circles are not a purely modern phenomenon, they were commonly seen 300 years ago and perhaps 300 years or more before then. The Mowing-Devil: Or, Strange NEWS out of Hartford-ſhire.
Robert Plot (1646) was born in Kent and received a BA degree from Oxford University in 1661, an MA in 1664 and a Law degrees in 1671. In 1677 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and became Secretary in 1682. He was responsible for the publication of Nos. 143 to 166 of The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. In 1683 Elias Ashmole appointed him as the first keeper of his museum, the now well known Ashmolean Museum and Bodleian Library in Oxford. Following is the text in full.

Robert Plot’s Natural History of Oxfordshire, first published in 1677, contained descriptions and illustrations of a wide range of Oxfordshire fossils, rocks and minerals. It also included the first known illustration of a dinosaur bone, thought by Plot to be the bone of a giant. Sadly, none of Plot’s specimens survive in the collections, but much can be learnt from the beautiful illustrations, all of which are reproduced here
The history of agriculture is the story of humankind's development and cultivation of processes for producing food, feed, fiber, fuel, and other goods by the systematic raising of plants and animals. Prior to the development of plant cultivation, human beings were hunters and gatherers. Because of agriculture, cities as well as trade relations between different regions and groups of people developed, further enabling the advancement of human societies and cultures. The introduction of new crops transformed private farming into a new global industry exported everywhere including Europe, where farming was mostly restricted to wheat strains obtained much earlier via central Asia.
Born in 1640, and died April 30, 1696. Fellow of the Royal Society, first keeper of the Ashmolean Museum and one-time professor of chemistry, his interest for freemasons consists in his Natural History of Staffordshire, published in 1686. In it he alludes to the existence of masonic lodges in Staffordshire very like our present system; some of his words seem traceable in the Sloane MS. 3848. 1 and the William Watson MS. Unfortunately Plot’s credulity lead him to attack the masonic institution.
