We are very saddened to announce the death of one of the foremost scholars in historical and archaeological glass, our dear friend, Jennifer Price. Jenny was a founding member of the AHG and served as president of both this association and the AIHV (Association Internationale pour l'Histoire du Verre). She had an unrivalled knowledge of glass, particularly Roman glass, and a publication record spanning 50 years. She authored, co-authored and edited important works on glass from Britain and abroad, including the CBA Handbook of Romano-British Glass Vessels, Roman Vessel Glass from Excavations in Colchester 1971 - 85, The Roman Glass from Usk, and many more. Jenny shared her wisdom generously, and enlivened our conferences and study days with her irrepressible enthusiasm and humour.
Jenny died in York on May 16th at the age of 79. Our condolences go to her partner and to her family and friends.
