Remembering Arnold

In common with the others who have shared their memories of Arnold here, I will always remember a kind, enthusiastic and supportive colleague and friend. I first met Arnold when I started work at Bradford, fresh from my PhD and realized my new desk was in his office. I approached it with some trepidation as I couldn’t imagine someone who had recently been Head of Department being keen to share with the newest recruit. I couldn’t have been more wrong. He was so generous with his space, his time and his books! His support and encouragement were unstinting and when I got my own office years later, I missed him greatly. During that time we worked together on setting up the MSc in Archaeological Prospection, which was something of which we were both very proud and one of Arnold’s many lasting legacies.
