Time Team archaeologist Prof Mick Aston has died at the age of 66.

The much-respected academic was a presenter on the Channel 4 programme as well as one of the brains behind its concept.

The programme's official Facebook page said: "It is with a very heavy heart that we've been informed that our dear colleague Mick Aston has passed away.

"Our thoughts are with his family."

Co-presenter Francis Pryor said on Twitter tonight that another Time Team member had confirmed the death.

He tweeted: "Have just spoken to Phil Harding. Sadly he confirmed that Mick Aston died last night. RIP dear friend."

I think he left when they brought in Mary-Ann Airhead as co-presenter. She was rubbish and was sacked before they made the last short series.

Miss Ochota, 30, holds a master’s degree in archaeology and anthropology from Cambridge University and has previously done modelling work, including shoots for Special K.

I don't care if you've got 20 degrees ranging from Quantum Physics to Neo-Octagonal Higgs Boson Field Strength, if you do modelling for "Special Fucking K" you've dumbed down your soul to the brain dead, consumerist, bullshit, rot that is the scourge of this earth and you've no place on Time Team.

Good on Mick and his brightly coloured jumpers for sticking up to his principles!!!

RIP!!
