Anne has over 25 years experience in both academic and commercial archaeology. Starting her archaeological life 1987 (until 1991) at Sutton Hoo, during vacation time, she graduated from Leicester University in 1992 wit BA(Hons) Archaeology, and subsequently worked for Leicestershire County Council Archeological Services, training as a Roman ceramic specialist, until returning to Leicester University to gain her MA Post-Excavation Skills in 1996. It was then that Anne chose to direct her career towards archaeological illustration and graphic design.
Anne now specialises in digital illustration techiniques, having obtained her Btech in Computer Aided Design in 1999, when AutoCad was just being introduced to the archaeological sector. To this end she was an external assessor in AutoCAD for the former Association of Archaeological Illustrators and Surveyors (now the Graphic Archaeological Group for the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists), and has been an Associate member (ACIFA) since 2000.
Prior to joining Oxford Archaeology in 2001, Anne was the Lead Archaeologist and Surveyor for a geotechnical engineering company in East Anglia, providing Heritage Management advice/reports, and ground settlelment monitoring throughout the region.
Senior Project Manager
Adam has nearly 20 years' experience in professional archaeology in Britain. After starting as a commercial field archaeologist he graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2001 with a First Class BA in Archaeology and Prehistory, followed by an MA in European Prehistory at the University of Wales, Cardiff, and then undertook research into middle Neolithic pottery at Sheffield University, gaining his PhD in 2013.
Adam is an experienced archaeologist, having worked at multiple commercial companies including PCA, MOLAS, and ARCUS, and then as a Project Officer at Oxford Archaeology North. His portfolio as a project manager includes a large landscape project at Newark, medieval excavations at Carlisle Cathedral and post-medieval and industrial sites near Manchester. He has undertaken post-excavation work, including specialist analysis and report production relating to prehistoric pottery, and has contributed to several peer review articles in this capacity.
Adam is in the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (ACIfA) and a member of both the Prehistoric Society and Prehistoric Ceramic Research Group.
A graduate of the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where he obtained a BA (Hons) in archaeology, John has worked as a professional archaeologist for nearly 30 years, becoming a Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (MCIfA) in 1987. A highly experienced fieldwork director and post-excavation researcher, John spent much of his early career working in historic urban environments, where he gained considerable expertise in the excavation of highly complex archaeology, including internationally significant waterlogged deposits.
John is vastly experienced in the excavation, recording and interpretation of multi-period archaeological remains, though his principal research interests lie in the archaeology of the Roman army and the development of urbanism in Britain. Since joining OA North in 2001, he has established a reputation as a leading expert on the Roman period in northern England, and has developed a strong track record of post-excavation analysis and publication. John has authored a wide range of archaeological reports, including substantial monographs presenting the results of large-scale urban excavations he directed at Winchester and Carlisle.
