Prof. em Paul Sinclair (1949-2023)


The last day of 2023, we received sad news, when we learned about the passing of our colleague and friend Paul Sinclair. ​The death of Paul Sinclair, Prof. em in African Archaeology at Uppsala University, is a loss for all of us, and not the least our community at Uppsala University’s Forum for Africa Studies. Paul was board-member of Forum in its very beginning, and he played a central role in the early years. Our thoughts go to his wife Amelie, and their three sons.

The photo is from Forum’s inauguration in March 2012, when Paul was one of the speakers. Read more about Paul’s major contributions to African Archaeology, and Africa research more generally here:

May he rest in  peace.
