I hadn't heard. I was mentioning him literally only two day ago. Thank you.
I never met him, but he was very influential for me. I still tell people to
go and read Martin's Hundred (the narrative) as an informative book. I often
cite material from it too. I recall his description of the salvage of the
Walbrook material and his sorrow at what was not salvaged - yet another
example of our ability to self-destruct in the UK.
He made a significant contribution to our knowledge.
The reason why I mentioned him? Nothing academic, sadly. He is the reason
that I cannot prevent myself from calling anyone called Noel Ivor, and
anyone called Ivor - you guessed it, Noel.
