    Abstract:
    An archaeological comic telling the story of the sarsen stones at Whiteknights. Whiteknights is now the main campus of the University of Reading. It used to be the gardens and park of Whitenights House, at one time owned by the Marquis of Blandford. The Marquis spent his fortune on his library and his gardens. He even shipped sarsens stones from family estates in north Wiltshire to Whiteknights, to build fashionable garden features including a grotto. This comic was created for the University of Reading Graduate School Conference 2017.
