[B]Martin Carver[/B]

A former soldier who was inspired by the archaeological sites he saw while posted in Arabia, Martin Carver?s fate was sealed when he became hooked on reading Antiquity ? the journal which he now edits. After spending almost 4 decades in the field, Martin has worked on sites from early Medieval towns (1975-1985) to Sutton Hoo (1983-2005) to Portmahomack?s Pictish monastery (1996-2007). He became the first secretary of the newly-formedInstitute ofField Archaeologists in 1982, Professor of Archaeology atYorkUniversity (where he was head of department for the next 10 years) in 1986, and was Vice-President of the Society of Antiquaries between 2002 and 2007.

My vote's there too, despite having been woken up at 7am one morning years back by Tony wearing only [censored for sanity's sake!!!!!] And what other archaeologist knows the entire script of Zulu, even if, as it turns out, in the wrong order }Smile
Just noticed that Tony has a spare hand on the shoulder .... extra trowel power!
Did Tony ever find a suitably-named collaborator for his book on early medieval fortifications: to be cited as 'Wilmott and Bailey'?

A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of Tony Robinson.
