I am very saddened to announce that Arnold Aspinall has died aged 87.
Arnold was an inspiration to us and one of the driving forces behind the establishing of Archaeological Sciences at the University of Bradford in the 1970s. He was the first head of Archaeological Sciences and he held this position in the 1980s. As you know he kept very close associations with [the Department] after retiring especially through his research in archaeological prospection. His knowledge, experience, leadership, commitment, generosity, friendship and humour will be sadly missed by friends and colleagues not only in Bradford but all over the world.
