Rhys' Day a day of research reports and celebration in memory of

Rhys Maengwyn Jones

on Saturday 21 September 2002 at The Society of Antiquaries,
Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1 organized for The Society
of Antiquaries & The Prehistoric Society by Stephen Aldhouse-
Green & Christopher Chippindale ([log in to unmask])

Rhys Jones (born Bangor, 26 February 1941; died Canberra, 19
September 2001) was buried in Bungendore with fitting ceremony.
Rhys' Day, near the first anniversary of his death, is an occasion to
say good-bye, to remember, to celebrate his life and his liveliness,
by something in the Rhys style - a gathering of researchers to
report and discuss new work, some of it by old colleagues, but
equally some of it by researchers of the young generation whether
they knew Rhys or not.
