Anthony Gibson left school without educational qualifications and secured an apprenticeship with an engineering firm. After National Service served in Korea and the Far East with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, he started an engineering company. Here he remained as Managing Director until 2003 when a larger organisation purchased the company. In 1983, following a lifelong interest in archaeology and history, he enrolled at the University of Keele and obtained a diploma in Archaeology. Four years later he was accepted as a mature student at the University of Nottingham where he completed a BA(Hons) and MPhil in the subject.
