Aerial Archaeology and the Gwent Levels
Living Levels Aerial Archaeology Evening Lecture: Aerial Archaeology and the Gwent Levels by Dr Toby Driver. The lecture will explore the stunning aerial archaeology of the Gwent Levels and its hinterland between Chepstow in the east and Cardiff in the west.
Taking to the skies in a light aircraft, the lecture will explore the hidden cropmarks of henges, burial mounds, hillforts, and Roman villas which continue to be discovered in south-east Wales in drought summers and in low winter light.
Aerial recording by the Royal Commission throughout the year also takes in historic and protected monuments, industrial landscapes, townscapes, and foreshore archaeology along the Severn Estuary revealed during extreme low tides.
The lecture will also look at how drones and airborne laser scanning have revolutionised archaeological recording in recent years.
Toby will be available for a Q and A session following the presentation.
This free lecture will be delivered via Zoom and the invitation will be sent to you once you have booked your place
