One of the activities that ArcLand is interested in fostering during the life-time of its project is the use of aerial archaeology sources for understanding the history of the landscape. This a topic that is central to all archaeological research and applied archaeology, in particular for monitoring landscape change and evaluating the impact of new development. To do this several different sources are used, nonethemore so than those associated with ArcLand such as oblique photographs, verticals, lidar, and remote data sources from geophysics and satellite imagery. Understanding the landscape from these sources is crucial in helping to shape effective measures of protection and management of the landscape for research, spatial planning and outreach activities. What this short article outlines are some of the ways that this can be achieved.
