David George Hogarth (born May 23, 1862 in Barton-upon-Humber, Lincolnshire; died November 6, 1927 in Oxford) was an English archaeologist and scholar, associated with T. E. Lawrence and Arthur Evans.

Between 1887 and 1907, Hogarth travelled to excavations in Cyprus, Crete, Egypt, Syria, Melos, and Ephesus (Temple of Artemis).

He was the keeper of the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford from 1909 until his death in 1927.

In 1915, during World War I, Hogarth joined the Geographical Section of the Naval Intelligence Division.[1]

The character of Dryden (played by Claude Rains) in the film, Lawrence of Arabia, was loosely based on an amalgamation of Hogarth and colonial Governor Ronald Storrs.
