Hidden Landscapes of a Roman Frontier
As part of the Digital Past 2017 session on Digital Survey we will be welcoming Nick Hannon, a PhD candidate working on the research project ‘Hidden Landscape of a Roman Frontier’.
This project, which is a collaboration between Canterbury Christ Church University and Historic Environment Scotland, aims to develop a comprehensive archaeological map of the Antonine Wall using a combination of LiDAR, terrestrial laser scanning and other remote sensing techniques. This interpretative resource then aims to inform and guide future research into, and management of, the monument.
Nick will be arguing that LiDAR datasets, and the detailed information contained within, can be used to shed new light on long debated archaeological questions, including those regarding the construction of the wall.
