A. J. Arkell is a scholar noted for his work in the Sudan and Egypt. A former official of the British colonial government, Arkell conducted several surveys, documenting among other things: the existence of massive iron works in Meroe which he dubbed "the Birmingham of Africa" and the extensive pre-dynastic culture of Egypt, notably the Badarians. Unknown to the general reader, Arkell's work has received recent attention due to the controversy over Afrocentrism, a movement of scholars and laymen seeking to eliminate distortion about African history according to its proponents. Arkell's work has received both positive and negative commentary in this regard. ...more on Wikipedia about "A.J. Arkell"

Andrea Carandini (b. 1937) is a contemporary Italian archaeologist specializing in ancient Rome. Among his many excavations is the villa of Settefinestre. The son of Nicolò Carandini, he was born in Rome and teaches Archaeology at the University of Rome La Sapienza. His research now focuses on the topography of Rome, Etruria in the Roman period and the analysis of monumental complexes in various cities in Italy ( Volterra, Grumentum, Pompeii, and Veii). Since 1993 he has coordinated a project in Rome's suburbium and the Tiber valley in conjunction with the Soprintendenza Archeologica e la Sovrintendenza Comunale di Roma. He continues to direct the excavations of the north slope of the Palatine Hill in Rome where important discoveries relating to the earliest city of Rome have been made, including the discovery of the famous Palatine wall in 1988 (cf. New York Times June 10, 1988). In the 1990s he was also involved in the excavation of the Auditorium site in Rome, a substantial domestic structure dating to the fifth century B.C.; it was most likely the monumental residence of an important clan (gens). Some of his views on the historicity of Romulus are controversial. Carandini was a student of Ranuccio Bianchi Bandinelli. ...more on Wikipedia about "Andrea Carandini"
