Time Team looks back at the life of an incredible man and great talent, Victor Ambrus, who passed away on 10th February 2021. Victor was not only Time Team's resident artist from its inception; he was also a prolific illustrator of over 300 books!
Victor was celebrated for humanising the past. Though a naturally quiet man, Victor's pictures spoke a thousand words and his legacy lives on in the huge catalogue of work he left behind.
We hear from many of Victor's colleagues and admirers, including Tim Taylor, Sir Tony Robinson, Sir Michael Morpurgo, Carenza Lewis, Stewart Ainsworth, Helen Geake, John Gater, Phil Harding, Suzannah Lipscomb, Jimmy Adcock, Jim Mower, Sue Breeze, Mick 'the Dig' Worthing, Neil Emmanuel, Philip Reeve, Martin Brown, Miles Russell.
Please note that many of the recollections featured here were recorded during interviews throughout the last 18 months. You can view some additional tributes from Time Team family and friends here.
