Saddened to report the passing of William “Bill” Longacre, who passed away yesterday in the US. Tito Bill, as he was affectionately known, played an influential role in the archaeology of the Philippines in his ethnoarchaeological study of the Kalinga and their ceramics. More importantly, he is remembered as a kind and supportive mentor who helped develop the careers of many Philippine archaeologists today. RIP.
