    I am sorry for your loss.

    I’ve had many useful informations reading this site.

    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.
