Mick Aston 'a unique man' with incredible knowledge

It just seems so incredible, like a bad dream, but unfortunately this is no dream. He was a seriously good mate and a seriously good archaeologist, a unique man.

Everybody loved him, he just had a way with people. I cannot believe there was anybody who disliked him, he just had such a relaxed way.

He had incredible knowledge and an effortless way of making archaeology accessible to people.
