The TV archaeologist Mick Aston, who lived in Winscombe in Somerset has died aged 66. Professor Aston found fame with the Time Team programme and was known for his colourful jumpers. Colleagues said he had an effortless way of making archaeology accessible to people.
Close friend and former colleague Dr Phil Harding said:
"Mick 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".
