We are very sorry to hear of the passing of Professor Mick Aston.
Mick was a keen supporter of YAC and had visited the Leicestershire YAC branch regularly. We have been lucky enough to see him at work on a number of Time Team projects in Leicestershire.
There is a tribute to Mick on the CBA website today, in his memory the council is publishing the full seven-year series of his ‘Mick’s Travels’ articles from British Archaeology on the website, where everyone can access them all for free. http://new.archaeologyuk.org/news/mick-aston-1946-2013
I’m sure we would all like to thank Mick for his inspirational contribution to Archaeology and pass our condolences to his family and friends.
Rest in peace.
