James is an architect and, not un-trained, enthusiastic amateur archaeologist, most interested in the Egyptian civilizations and those which came out of the desert. He has written papers on the subject, the intention being in the future to write a new travelogue of Egypt on the scale of those in the 18th and 19th Centuries which inspired him to conduct his own travels in the desert.
