RIP a Great Archaeologist: Peter Connolly

Posted on May 13, 2012


Just saw that Peter Connolly died. In case you don’t know who he is, Peter Connolly wrote the greatest books relating to archaeology I have ever had the pleasure of reading. His books combined the archaeological record with the most amazing story telling and topped off with great illustrations. I read his books when I was ten and later when I was twenty. My ten year old self was amazed by them and my 20 year old self found them an invaluable resource for my undergraduate work, that is how great they are. Really sad I never got to meet him.
