The last Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland (IAI) conference for 2008 was held in Sligo over the weekend. The conference theme was recent technical applications developed and used in archaeological and landscape surveys, excavation, recording, analysis, dating, archiving and visualisation, with the Saturday session dedicated to the late Markus Casey.
A minute’s silence was observed on Friday in honour of Markus and Simon Dick, who also passed away recently. Simon talked eloquently to the Irish Times back in July about coping with his illness.
Both Markus and Simon will be sadly missed.
