    I am sorry for your loss.

    My best …

    I read the news of Eric’s death with a great sense of loss. I shared a house with Eric in the days when his garage was full of shoe boxes containing the ancient bones from an Anglo-Saxons graveyard and when I was likely to be woken up in the morning by a ferret and a polecat climbing through my bed!
    I hope the website is kept going. It is a great resource to anybody interested in the human sciences and cultural history. It is in fact a unique resource given Eric’s special combination of experience, insight and academic background.

  3. Thank you so much, Owen, for maintaining this site. After being a fan of Inspector Morse for (ahem) decades, I suddenly decided I could not go on living without knowing why the Radcliffe Camera is round. How grateful and satisfied I was to read your father’s account of the history of its development. What a reward for curiosity! Thank you.

  4. I’m so sorry to learn of your father’s passing. I discovered this website just recently and what a useful and interesting treasure trove it is. I wish I could tell your father how appreciative I am. Thank you for keeping the website online so that people can continue to learn from him.

    Dear Sir I am sorry to hear your father’s passing, Please accept our condolences. I was reading his work on Female Shaman and Medicine woman; I’ve founded very accurate and informative; I’m investigating Gok-Tengri (Sky-God) religion which is generalized as a shaman religion.
    May Gok-Tanri take your Father’s soul to heaven.

  6. Blessings to you and your family, my condolences. Blessings.

  7. Thank you, Owen, for keeping this site. I have only just come across your father’s work here and am finding his knowledge really useful. Please accept my condolences. His passing is a sad loss to all.
