Tributes to
J. Desmond Clark


Professor Desmond Clark will be remembered with deep affection and esteem by those who knew him. I met him at Allahabad University. It was the time when I was going to submit my Ph.D. thesis and approached him with trepidation. He was never too busy to discuss matters of archaeological interest and no query was too insignificant to him. He always made one feel welcome. He was a wonderful teacher and had a strong sense of intellectual craftsmanship. His lectures were distinguished and I could appreciate them more now, when I am teaching archaeology.

We will remember him for the charm that endeared him to us and for his sincerity, kindness, enthusiasm, wit and humour and the brilliance of his scholarship.
