Vin Davis FSA

We have received the sad news of the death of Vin Davis FSA, a leading force in British ancient stone implement petrology, who died on 19 November, aged 73, after a short illness. He was a member of the Prehistory Research Section of YAS.

The funeral will be on Monday 7 December at 10.30 am in St. Olave's Church, Marygate, York (YO30 7BH), followed by an informal buffet lunch in the Hospitium, next to the church, in the Museum Gardens.

To commemorate Vin's life, his wife Rosemary and daughter Amy are establishing a bursary fund to support doctorate research in implement petrology, at University College Dublin. Donations, in lieu of flowers, may be made to this fund (either at the funeral or details will be available via email in due course)
