Steve Willis has been an Archaeologist for over 35 years having begun studying the subject in evening classes at his school. He has an MA and PhD from Durham University and came to Kent in 2004 (he denies this was because the cricket team is always better than that of his home county - Sussex). He specializes in the Iron Age and Roman periods and has excavated widely. He has been a member of the KAS Council for 14 years and was elected Vice President in 2019.
