magog_83: (Anne Boleyn)
[personal profile] magog_83
I was very sad to read about the death of Professor Mick Aston last night, famous of course for his role in Time Team on channel 4 but also my home county's first County Archaeologist (Somerset) and a lecturer at Bristol University, as well as the author of many brilliant books on archaeology. I used 'Landscape of Towns', which he edited, heavily for the medieval chapters of my PhD.

Francis Pryor, a fellow Time Team alumni, has left a short but lovely tribute here with a great last photograph, and Dr Phil Harding, also from Time Team as well as Wessex Archaeology speaks about him in this BBC article.

Professor Aston left Time Team under something of a cloud, but he explained his reasons very eloquently here and clearly shows his passion for his subject.

Here he is with some of the Time Team crew
