Elysium or the Elysian Fields (Ancient Greek: Ἠλύσιον πεδίον, Ēlýsion pedíon) is a conception of the afterlife that developed over time and was maintained by certain Greek religious and philosophical sects and cults. Initially separate from the realm of Hades, admission was reserved for mortals related to the gods and other heroes. Later, it expanded to include those chosen by the gods, the righteous, and the heroic, where they would remain after death, to live a blessed and happy life, and indulging in whatever employment they had enjoyed in life.

From Tim Ellis with many thanks.
John at my place in Hornsby 1992 ( I think). We kept in
touch until he passed 1996. He’d just been to see Frankie
Howerd. Hope this helps, he was such a gentle soul.

Jane worked in the Environmental Lab and left round about 1980 for the National Maritime.
Very lively, full of joie-de-vivre, certainly one of Hobley's Heroines.
She died in September  at the age of sixty after a long battle with cancer.

I worked with Val on Trig Lane (TL74) during the summer of 1975. He was volunteering during the Institute of Archaeology summer break. I remember him as very positive and funny. Infact, I am sure his sense of humour was the reason he chose Roman Phallic Pottery for his thesis.
However, he has always been my 'Unsung Hero' for a practical reason. He introduced the now ubiquitous 'Plasterers Leaf' to, at least, London Archaeology.
So, whenever you see, or use, a Plasterers Leaf, I hope you will think of Val. John Burke-Easton
