Sad to hear of his death, but guess he had a great innings. So one can only celebrate the life of such a, well, celebrated archaeologist. His books were the first I came across that seemed to possess a sardonic wit in lieu of the standard, dusty academic reporting of statistics, damned statistics.... he seemed to be explaining things to you, as opposed to talking down to you. I'd be surprised if there is a serious megalithic punter out there who hasn't used his seminal stone circle guide at some point or other in their life. Mine is quite literally falling apart. Enough said. And, of course, he gave Cope his seal of approval. Always willing to pass on the baton.
