We at IPHES have received his influence and enjoyed with his participation in meetings at Tarragona
Sad news are coming from Israel. Our friend and colleague Ofer Bar-Yosef, Professor emeritus of Prehistoric Archaeology at Harvard University passed away yesterday.
My thoughts go to his family and his colleagues in Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel-Aviv. Our warm regards to all of them.
We all have lost a good friend who encouraged all us.
His research was unusually wide in scope and interests going from early human evolution to the rise of farmers. Always interested in the turning points on human history.
Many people and research groups all around the world are in debt to his work in producing, organising and promoting research.
We at IPHES have received his influence and enjoyed with his participation in meetings at Tarragona and at the workshop The last neandertals the first anatomically modern humans (Abric Romaní, Capellades, Barcelona, 1995).
Thanks for all Ofer. We will miss you.
