Sir David Mackenzie Wilson (born 30 October 1931) is a British archaeologist, art historian, and museum curator, specialising in Anglo-Saxon art and the Viking Age. From 1977 until 1992 he served as the Director of the British Museum, where he had previously worked, from 1955 to 1964, as an assistant keeper. In his role as director he was implicated in the international controversy concerning looting related to the British Museum, indirectly playing a major role in the growing movement for the restitution of the Parthenon Marbles to Athens.
