John Manley (born 1950) is a British archaeologist and author. His book AD 43, published by Tempus in 2002, is the first to give serious consideration to the archaeological evidence for the Roman invasion of Britain having taken place via alternative routes (as opposed to the traditional view of Richborough in Kent as the main landing-place).
Manley was educated at the universities of Manchester and Sussex, and has excavated throughout Europe, as well as in the Near East, Africa and the Caribbean. He was formerly County Archaeologist of Clwyd and Chief Executive of the Sussex Archaeological Society. He is currently an Hon. Research Fellow and a Trustee of the Sussex Archaeological Society.
