RIP Peter Connolly

I read the very sad news today that Peter Connolly died on 2 May 2012. Artist, experimental archaeologist, historian, and all round inspiration to any right minded soul interested in ancient military history. This was the man who visited my partner's school when she was a child, bringing with him a load of Roman army kit and got the kids enjoying themselves with shields, swords and helmets. I never met Peter; he will be missed by many of us but always remembered.
