Barry Fell



Barry Fell (1917 - 1994)
The photograph is of a relief sculpture of Dr. Fell made prior to his death.

He gave us the benefit of his ideas and insights, encouraged independent evaluations, and inspired us to delve deeply into roots of epigraphic knowledge.

He gave keys to decipher unknown scripts, and ESOP as a place to exchange views on ancient languages knowledge.

As a teacher, he encouraged us to follow where the evidence might lead, and not be deterred in the pursuit of scientific method if the hypotheses developed contradicted current opinion or belief structures.

Let us continue the process of sorting through the evidence, encouraging heuristic debate, and presenting new discoveries
