Ormonde Maddock Dalton, FBA (1866–1945) was a British museum curator and archaeologist.[1] Though very much an all-rounder, his main expertise was in medieval art. He usually published as O. M. Dalton, but also wrote under the pseudonym W. Compton Leith.[1]

From 1921 to 1928 he was Keeper of the British and Medieval Antiquities Department at the British Museum.[2] As well as the books below, he wrote a stream of articles and short books for the museum.
