Andrew Selkirk founded Current Archaeology in 1967 with his wife Wendy, and is now Editor-in-Chief. He has always been interested in archaeology: he did his first dig at school at the age of 13, subsequently went up to Oxford, where he read classics and became President of the Oxford University Archaeological Society. Believing that you cannot understand the past unless you first understand the present, he then became a Chartered Accountant, but while serving articles, he edited the student magazine Contra. This gave him a taste for editing magazine, so having qualified, he decided to abandon accountancy and launch a new archaeology magazine, called Current Archaeology. This was a success from the start, and has covered virtually all aspects of British archaeology.
Andrew Selkirk is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and was Vice-President of the Royal Archaeological Institute, and has served on the councils of the Prehistoric Society, and the Roman Society. He has a particular interest in amateur archaeology, and is Chairman of the Council for Independent Archaeology which was established to promote archaeology carried out independently of government.
He is currently writing a book, Barbarism and Civilisation, the first drafts of which can be read on the website www.civilization.org.uk
Carly studied Anglo-Saxon, Norse, and Celtic at St John’s College, Cambridge, before becoming a journalist at Masons News Service, where she helped to cover eight counties in the east of England for the national papers. Quickly realising that she preferred covering history and archaeology stories above all others, she then joined Time Team as a researcher, later working for the Horrible Histories TV series; providing background information for educational history videos; helping with the development of an ancient Egyptian-themed computer game; and assisting with research for the recently-published The Bones of a King: Richard III Rediscovered.
Lucia studied Spanish and Classics at King’s College London. She then decided to devote more of her time to the ancient world and read for an MA in Classics at UCL. She has worked as a researcher on a number of history-related book, radio, and film projects and as a journalist, writing on archaeological discoveries, exhibitions, and travel. She is also the Editorial Assistant for Current Archaeology‘s sister magazine, Current World Archaeology.

He has written three books, The Decline and Fall of Roman Britain, Apocalypse, the story of the Jewish revolt. and Hidden Treasure for the BBC.
