Although he was not a society member older readers may remember Tony guiding the Hadsoc round the then newly excavated Hospital site at Housesteads. Those with Yorkshire connections may recall him from his time with York Archaeological Trust and, subsequently, with West Yorkshire Archaeological Trust. More recently he was a freelance archaeological consultant based in Nottinghamshire. Tragically, after recovering from cancer, Tony died suddenly on 4th October.
