Obituary: Agnès Spycket (1921-2022)
Keywords:Musée du Louvre, Assyrian, Mesopotamia, Obituary, Gender
Our colleague and friend Agnès Spycket passed away peacefully in the middle of January at her Parisian home in the rue de la Rochefoucauld. A few months earlier, she had celebrated her hundredth birthday in privacy, a privacy that she had wanted but which was especially necessary in the context of the current pandemic. With her death, after that of Pierre Amiet a few months earlier, a part of the history and memory of archaeological research in the Near East in the second half of the 20th century has disappeared.
