Joshua Archer (fl. 1841 - 1861) was a draughtsman of Pentonville, London, and a prolific engraver of maps. He produced a series of maps for William Pinnock, a part series of Diocese maps for the British Magazine, some maps for Henry Fisher, and engraved a set for Thomas Dugdale's Curiosities of Great Britain. The Dugdale maps were engraved by Archer to replace those by Cole and Roper found in the early copies of Dugdale's historical and topographical gazetter-style work.
