Brian Fagan

Brian Fagan was born in England and studied archaeology at Pembroke College, Cambridge. After seven years working in East and Central Africa, where he was deeply involved in fieldwork and monuments conservation, he came to the United States in 1966. He was Professor of anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara, from 1967 to 2003, when he became Emeritus.

Since coming to Santa Barbara, Fagan has specialized in communicating archaeology to general audiences through lecturing, writing, and other media. He is regarded as one of the world’s leading archaeological writers. His many books include three volumes for the National Geographic Society, including the bestselling Adventure of Archaeology. Other works include The Rape of the Nile, a classic history of archaeologists and tourists along the Nile, and four books on ancient climate change and human societies: Floods, Famines, and Emperors (on El Niños), The Little Ice Age, The Long Summer, and The Great Warming (2008), an account of the Medieval Warm Period and its implications for the future.

Fagan’s other interests include bicycling, kayaking, cruising under sail, and good food. He lives in Santa Barbara, California.
