My name is Joe Roe. I'm an archaeologist and researcher at the University of Copenhagen. There's more about me and my research on my personal website.

On Wikipedia, I work on articles about archaeology, biographies of scientists, and a handful of other subjects. I think it's important to address systemic biases in our coverage and I set up the women in archaeology task force to that end. I also enjoy making maps: if you want one for an article, please ask!

Behind the scenes, I'm an administrator on the English Wikipedia and a member of its Arbitration Committee. I do maintenance work because I want to help retain good content and good editors, which has guided me towards new page patrol, articles for deletion, and dispute resolution. I don't like seeing the free encyclopaedia commercialised, so please, if you are here on behalf of a company or client, don't ask for a BOGOF from me.

I have one alternative account, Joe Roe (mobile).
