In the 1970s she directed excavations at three major archaeological sites in Orkney – the Pictish and Viking farmstead at Buckquoy in Birsay, the Neolithic farmstead of Knap of Howar on Papa Westray and a Neolithic chambered cairn on the Holm of Papa Westray. As well as publishing widely in academic journals and books, Ritchie has also written extensively for more popular publications. She has authored numerous guidebooks and publications for the HMSO and Historic Environment Scotland, covering topics such as Scottish Prehistory, Picts, Vikings, early Medieval sculpture and place-focused works on the archaeology of Iona, Orkney, Shetland, and Bute. She was a panellist on a 1971 episode of the television show Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, discussing the Viking Age. She has also acted as a consultant for the television series Time Team and Blood of the Vikings.

Beginning her career in the late 1960s, she has researched and published widely in academic and popular publications. In 1968, she married fellow archaeologist J N Graham Ritchie in 1968, (died 2005) and the couple had two children. She and her husband often collaborated on fieldwork, research and writing projects, including Scotland: Archaeology and Early History (1981), the Oxford Archaeological Guide to Scotland (1998) and The Ancient Monuments of Orkney, published in 1978.

Her interest in archaeology began as a young student at Woking Girls’ Grammar School in the 1950s. The school had a small collection of Roman and Egyptian artefacts which the young Anna curated, catalogued and redisplayed. In an interview with the Egypt Centre at Swansea University, she recalled, ‘the artefacts were displayed in a shelved case in the main entrance hall of the school, and I loved looking after them. You are right in thinking that I compiled the first inventory, and indeed that the museum was a spur to my future as an archaeologist.’ She received her BA from Cardiff University and completed her PhD at the University of Edinburgh in 1970.

Dr Anna Ritchie OBE, BA, PhD, FSA, Hon FSA Scot (née Bachelier, born 28 September 1943) is a British archaeologist and historian.
