Anne Johnson (archaeologist)
Anne Patricia Johnson , née Gentry (born August 28, 1951 ) is a British Provincial Roman Archaeologist .
Johnson attended Maynard Girls' School in Exeter , Devon . She then studied archeology at Cardiff University , where she did her bachelor's degree . She then worked from 1978 to March 1983 as an excavator and excavation manager for the Museum of London , the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter and the Milton Keynes Development Corporation. In addition to area excavations, she was also responsible for a number of city core excavations.
She became internationally known with her dissertation published in 1983 at Cardiff University on the planning of Roman forts in the 1st and 2nd centuries in Britain and the Germanic provinces. This often quoted handbook , which is still important today , was published in 1987 for the German public in an adaptation by the archaeologist Dietwulf Baatz . She was particularly supported and encouraged in this work by Michael G. Jarrett .
In the following years from March 1983 to October 1989 she took a full-time break from archeology and worked on a self-employed basis as the manager of the guest house "Wesley Cottage", which was named after the founder of the Methodist Church , John Wesley .
In 1990, together with her husband, the archaeologist Anthony Edward Johnson, she founded the company "Oxford Archaeotechnics", which specializes in geophysical prospecting and was entered in the commercial register on January 13, 1993. The company, in which the Johnson couple shared the management, had its longstanding headquarters in The Willows, Noke , Oxfordshire . In addition to this activity, Anne Johnson worked as a freelance archaeologist and historical consultant between October 1989 and July 2015. After the profits from the small business declined, "Oxford Archaeotechnics" continued to operate as dormant in 2011-2013 and 2015-2016.
Since August 2015 Anne Johnson has been with the Paddington , London- based company "Archeology Collective", which offers a wide range of services in the fields of archeology, monument protection , landscape planning and environmental sustainability.
