About the tutor

David Johnson initially studied history and historical geography, gained his first experience of field archaeology at the age of 22, and has spent a lifetime trying to make sense of rural landscapes and ‘deconstruct’ the links between geology and the ways in which people through the ages have interacted with their environment. He has been based in Upper Ribblesdale since 1983 and has lectured and published widely on his research interests. He has led four Stories in Stone archaeology projects.
