Sir Tony Robinson

Congratulations, Sir Tony!

What a way to start the day – it’s all over the papers that our friend Tony has received a Knighthood in the Queen’s birthday honours.

He was recommended for his “‘public and political service’ as a Labour party activist”, but of course he is also the man that made a country fall in love with archaeology. Well done, Sir Tony!
