Professor Simon Keay FBA
Simon had an immense impact on all of the students and colleagues around him. His generosity of spirit and approachable nature were backed up by a limitless knowledge of Roman and Mediterranean archaeology. As a colleague, Simon was always incredibly supportive. In the projects where I worked with him, since 1998, at Portus and then Isola Sacra, among many others, he fulfilled the role not only of project director, but as team mate, supporter and friend to all of the staff and students on each project. Bloody hell I’ll miss him. We all will.
