R.I.P. Mick Aston

Professor Michael Antony 'Mick' Aston, FSA (1 July 1946 - 23 June 2013)

For me, Mick Aston was one of those who got me really interested in landscape archaeology at an early age, the techniques of studying landscapes. His writings on the subject (together with OGS Crawford) were an important inspiration and influential in making archaeology into a lifelong passion and interest. He was also an exemplary extra-mural teacher, bringing archaeology to a wider public. One of archaeology's more colourful and instantly recognizable characters, he will be sorely missed.

Sadly, I'm talking pre-Time Team days, which I guess makes me older than you.
