Project Manager (Post-Excavation)

Anne CroneFrom 1977 to 1992 Anne worked as a free-lance field archaeologist primarily in Scotland and has directed a wide range of archaeological excavations. During this period she developed an expertise in the analysis of structural and artefactual wood, and trained as a dendrochronologist, completing a PhD on the subject in 1988.  She joined AOC in 1992 and manages a variety of post-excavation, publication and research projects. She continues to specialise in the analysis of all aspects of wood assemblages, particularly dendrochronology, and pursues her research interests in Scottish crannogs, lecturing and publishing on both subjects. She is a founder member of the Scottish Wetland Archaeology Programme. Anne served as a Councillor of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland from 1997-9 and as Vice-President of the Council for Scottish Archaeology from 2000-2004.
