Obituaries: Professor Stuart Piggott

Click to follow
I was sad not to find in the obituary of Professor Stuart Piggott [by Roger Mercer, 27 September] any mention of his wife, Peggy, writes Brian W. Holtam. Peggy was also a fine archaeologist. She had supported her husband generously in his work before, during and after the Second World War, and while they remained together in Edinburgh. Indeed, it is doubtful that Stuart would have achieved so much without Peggy's professional, financial and moral support.

Peggy died as Peggy Guido on 8 September 1994, aged 82, and childless. Her compassionate concern for Stuart, whose health was failing, led her to visit him regularly at his home during her last four or five years.
