Re: Sad News: Bruce Trigger
- This is very sad news. Although I never met Bruce Trigger in person, I
interviewed him extensively by telephone for my book about Catalhoyuk,
The Goddess and the Bull, which contained long sections about
archaeological history. He also provided a very kind jacket blurb. In
talking to others who knew him, they say that he was invariably
generous with his time and encouragement of other scholars,
particularly up and coming younger ones. And of course he was probably
the foremost historian of archaeology in the world. I hope that others
who knew him will contribute their thoughts.
best wishes, Michael Balter
