Description:
Ronald Montagu Burrows (16 August 1867 – 14 May 1920) was a British academic who served as Principal of King's College London from 1913-1920.

He was educated at Charterhouse School and Christ Church, Oxford. He was Professor of Greek at University College, Cardiff from 1898 until 1908, and at the University of Manchester from 1908 until 1913. In 1913 he became Principal of King's College London, and held that post until his death in 1920.

Burrows was also a noted archaeologist who performed excavations in Greece at Pílos (ancient Pylos, on the Coryphasium promontory) and the nearby island of Sfaktiría. Much of this work helped to establish studies of the Minoan civilization.

He was also instrumental in bringing Greece into World War I as a political and military ally of Britain.
