Dr. Arthur Gerald Norcott Brodribb (21 May 1915 – died 7 October 1999) was a cricket historian and archaeologist.

Born in St Leonards-on-Sea, Brodribb graduated from Oxford, where his tutor had been C.S. Lewis, and became a schoolmaster. From 1956 to 1968, he owned and ran Hydneye House, a prep school in East Sussex.

Brodribb was a descendent of the Victorian actor Sir Henry Irving and a founder member of the Cricket Society. His best known work in cricket is Next Man In which "took cricket's Laws, and re-examined them all with an eye to their quirks, oddities and exceptions". Among his other famous works are Hit for Six, a compendium of the big-hitters in cricket, and The Croucher, a biography of the early twentieth century cricketer Gilbert Jessop.

Later in his career, he took an interest in archaeology and was awarded a doctorate in 1985 for his thesis on Roman building materials. His 'Roman brick and tile' is an important work on the subject. He took a particular interest in the Classis Britannica iron-working site at Beauport Park.
