Dr. Nathaniel Thomas Wetherell MRCS FGS (September 6, 1800 – December 22, 1875) was a British geologist and surgeon. His work involved the collection of various fossils found in England. He was born, lived, and died in Highgate, England.
Wetherell discovered a strange mixture of rocks and fossils of northern provenance in Coldfall Wood, Muswell Hill in 1835. This led subsequently to the recognition that glaciation had affected southern England.
