Andrew George Sherratt was one of the most talented archaeologists of the last few decades. He will be remembered as a great scholar, skilled writer, influential teacher, and above all as a great friend of many archaeologists from different parts of the world. His interests covered all the major shifts in humanity from global colonisation through the spread of agriculture to the development of metallurgy and urbanism, including the Indo-European question and the development of new forms of consumption. Sherratt made clear that archaeology was for him the extension of history
