thinking about archaeology

Mick

Too soon. We’ve lost a man who was always true to himself, who loved life and inspired everyone he knew and met. If you liked archaeology, he was the archaeologist you wanted to be. His steadfast commitment to understanding the landscape and the lives of the people who made it – and to sharing his enthusiasm with others – shone through decades of two continuously changing professions, archaeology and broadcasting, as his style fell in and out of fashion, and back again. We were privileged to have him around. Thanks, Mick.

  1. Yes, I was very sad to hear this yesterday. With Time Team, he changed the face of archaeology for the general public forever, and made it interesting to everyone. Thanks, Mick, you’re going to be greatly missed, I think.
