About the Author

Simon James read archaeology at the London Institute of Archaeology, where he also took his PhD on the Roman military equipment from Dura-Europos, Syria, by which time the Institute had become part of University College, London. After a decade at the British Museum, as an archaeological illustrator and then as an educator, he returned to the University sector via a Leverhulme Fellowship at Durham. He joined the University of Leicester in January 2000, becoming professor in 2012. His research mainly relates to ancient conflict, especially in the Roman world and contemporary societies in Europe and the Middle East. Dura-Europos has continued to be a major focus of his work, leading to the military base project.
