Cheers man. I know I'm speaking for each one of us, as all of us are.

Your comment about how Burl changed your perspective about re-visiting sites is key. Wish I were in the UK. Would be lovely to visit Avebury - or any site - with a group of fellow modern antiquarians (or antique mods, as I describe myself these days) for a kind of fan commemoration. A celebration of his whole trip. I'm sure many of you will be doing just that. Keep me in mind!

Just want to add that for some reason Julian's mention of Burl in some posts years ago, around the time of Julian's Avebury lecture in London, made a real impression on me. Burl endeared himself all the more to me in the way he was so cool to Julian. I was struck by how open-minded, generous and accepting he was, with none of that snobbish vibe some specialists have. A gentleman and a scholar, to be sure.
