The Philadelphia Archaeological Forum is sad to hear that one of our finest colleagues, and a dearest friend to many, Michael Parrington, has died. Mike Parrington passed away October 18th, very peacefully, at home, with family gathered all around him. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
