Crop Marks of 2018
Bill Horner
Devon County Archaeologist

Bill will be talking about the history of archaeological aerial photography from nineteenth century balloon flights to modern laser technology.
Using evidence from the air of earthworks, crop marks and parch marks, he will discuss how it’s changed our understanding of prehistoric and Roman settlement. He’ll use examples from East Devon where possible, and show some of the startling images that surfaced during the long dry summer of 2018.
