Dr Darran Jordan has undertaken work as a consultant archaeologist since 2006, working in both Indigenous and historical archaeology throughout the many states and multiple legislative frameworks of Australia. He was awarded a PhD in Archaeology by the University of Sydney, Australia, in 2012, for a thesis based on research undertaken in Cambodia as part of the Greater Angkor Project. He has since presented papers at conferences and symposia both nationally and internationally. In 2016, his paper “Archaeology and the Supermen” on representations of archaeology in comic books was published in the collection That Was Then, This Is Now: Contemporary Archaeology and Material Cultures in Australia. He also co-edited Defining the Fringe of Contemporary Australian Archaeology: Pyramidiots, Paranoia and the Paranormal. In addition to his work as an archaeologist and on other non-fiction projects, he writes works of fiction, which have been published in various forms, including comic books, short stories, short films and audio plays, and is the current editor of the science fiction magazine Data Extract.
