Call to Arms: Please ask Channel 4 to Commission a Special ‘One-Off’ Dig in memory of Mick Aston


When studying at the University of Bristol, I had the distinct pleasure of working with Mick Aston both in the classroom and on Time Team.  Mick was a fantastic individual; brimming with knowledge, incredibly outgoing, and a genuinely nice person.

Lee Brady recently started a petition encouraging the UK’s Channel 4 to produce a one-off televised dig in memory of Mick.  Time Team, which ran for an astounding 20 season, was axed by Channel 4 in 2013.  This presentation would be an outstanding way to pay tribute to Mick, a man whose legacy as both a professor and a professional should not be forgotten.

Please take the time to follow the link below and support this fantastic petition.

Sign the petition here.
