He has devoted much time to the illus- tration of the archaeology and his- tory of his native coimty, and since 1867 has been the editor of " The Montgomeryshire Collections," is- sued by the Powysland Club, which contain elaborate and useful con- tributions to local topography and history, and afford complete and extensive materials for the history of the county of Montgomery. In 1876 his archaeological services were acknowledged by a testimonial raised by. public subscriptions, which were devoted chiefly to the purchase of a fine life-size bronze grroup, representing a scene in Welsh history, which, at his re- quest, was placed in the Powys- land Museum.

He is the author of various physiological discoveries, recorded in the Philosophical Transactions and elsewhere : in particular, the facts discovered by Mr. Wharton Jones relating to the mechanism of the extreme vessels and the course of the blood in them have greatly elucidated the phe- nomena of the inflammatory pro- cess — a subject in regard to which extraordinary errors are still cur- rent.
