Archaeologist Bill Putnam has died at the age of 78.

He came to Dorset in 1967 as principal lecturer in archaeology at Weymouth College of Education, later working for Bournemouth University, retiring in 1995.

He maintained his enthusiasm for his subject, especially the Romans, in his retirement, becoming a popular and authoritative speaker and lecturer involved in courses and talks to groups and organisations in the area.

Bill spent much time in the south of France, where he has become fascinated by the famous treasure story of Rennes-le-Château. As a result of eight years of research into this mystery, he has recently co-written with John Edwin Wood The Treasure of Rennes-le-Château - a mystery solved. See his website for more details
