Aerial Photography and Map Regression

Aerial Photography and Map Regression Training 26th and 28th January 2016

Today we undertook our second training session covering ‘Aerial Photography and Map Regression‘.  During the session we used various applications that professional archaeologists would use to undertake any form of basic research. These include:

This training provides the tools for our volunteers to begin researching ideal places independently for the projects forthcoming field walking event, and in addition carry out research into their own family and village history!

Thank you to all our fabulous volunteers who attended the second training session, we look forward to seeing the fruits of your research and hearing all about it at our next session.

Sun, sea, and archaeology! Who could ask for more?

A big thank you to everyone who attended the second Archaeological Workshop for the Gower Landscape Project yesterday. The Great Gods of Archaeology smiled down upon us and provided us with excellent weather for our stroll across Rhossili Down.  From field banks and hollow ways to cairns and burial chambers, with a good dollop of WWII thrown in for good measure! We saw it all! I hope the day helped you to start viewing the landscape in a different way and to question everything thing you see.
