Hector Catling, who died on 15 February 2013 aged 88, was one of the great archaeologists of his generation. He made major contributions to our understanding of the past of Greece and Cyprus. He served successively as Archaeological Survey Officer for Cyprus, Assistant Keeper at the Ashmolean and Director of the British School at Athens. Always an innovator, he became a distinguished leader at the BSA and an inspiring mentor to the many young archaeologists who passed through his hands.
