Doug began his archaeological career in 1972, excavating in the Middle East followed by a number of expeditions in the Horn of Africa with the British Institute of Archaeology. He returned to Australia and in 1979 was appointed as Professional Officer in the Department of Archaeology and Palaeoanthropology at the University of New England, Armidale, NSW.
