Recent Analytical survey and investigation in the World Heritage Site, by David Field.
Monuments within the Stonehenge Landscape have rarely been subject to survey techniques in modern times and in many cases reliance has been placed on Ordnance Survey depictions of the early 20th century. In advance of the establishment of a new visitor centre and to complement and support the recent university programmes of excavation in the area, English Heritage has been conducting the Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project to determine what non-destructive survey techniques can tell us about the area. Using ground survey, aerial photography, lidar and laser scanning a number of fresh and sometimes surprising conclusions emerge. This talk will outline the results so far.
This lecture, originally scheduled for this coming Saturday, 10th December is now sold out. The lecture will now be repeated on Saturday, 10 March, 2012. Early booking is advisable.
