Prof. George Leonard Huxley (1932-2022)
It is with great sadness that we note the passing, peacefully in Oxfordshire, of Prof. George Leonard Huxley at the age of ninety.
Huxley first came to the BSA from Magdalen College and Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, and he was appointed Assistant Director for the 1956-57 and 1957-58 academic years. During his time as AD he conducted a study of Early Greek chronology and history, specifically the historical development of Greek epic poetry. He also did a study on the early history of Argos. In addition to his studies he took part in the excavations at Knossos under the then BSA Director, Sinclair Hood.
