Meet the Team
John Wood, who founded the company, was previously Senior Archaeologist for the Highland Council and has over 30 years’ professional experience in a variety of roles from freelance fieldwork to university lecturing. Following a first degree from Cambridge University he was awarded a first class postgraduate qualification in professional archaeology from Oxford University in 1981. He has been an active full member of the Institute of Field Archaeologists for over 25 years, and is a member of the Association for Heritage Interpretation and a former Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.
Lachlan McKeggie joined us in February 2013. He is an archaeology graduate of Glasgow University who has worked for Historic Scotland and Archaeology Scotland as well as ARCH: Highland, Alness Heritage Centre and other organisations. He has particular expertise in fieldwork, museums, and community archaeology.
We are pleased to work with many locally-based freelance archaeologists across the north of Scotland, with a wealth of local knowledge and expertise, who are subject to the company's quality assurance procedures. In particular, Paul Humphreys in Caithness, Emma Malone in Moray, and Pete Higgins in Dornoch are regular contributors to our work. All are IfA Members with extensive experience.
We also have a wider network of finds, geophysics and other specialists in the UK who assist where necessary.
