He is a director and principal investigator of the Binchester Project excavating the Binchester Roman Fort in the UK.

Apart from his archaeological work, Devore has written an expansive novel called Pantheon (ISBN: 978-1-105-08767-7) that tells the story of the ancient Greek and Roman gods reclaiming their worship in the modern world.[2] It is a Humanistic work that critiques many aspects of organized religion.

Devore is also the author of a guidebook to Rome targeted toward "tourists and scholars who are interested in exploring first-hand the grandeur and magnificence that was ancient Rome through a Humanist, secular, and freethinking lens."[3] It is called Walking Tours of Ancient Rome: A Secular Guidebook to the Eternal City (ISBN: 978-1-105-33665-2).
