James Dixon is an archaeologist with a pleasingly short biography. He is one of the co-organisers of Public Archaeology 2015. James divides his time between working as an archaeologist, pretending he’s a different kind of archaeologist, aspiring to be yet another kind of archaeologist, and editing the writing of other archaeologists.
