Can you help our alumni to interpret archaeology sites in the Chilterns?

A project 'Beacons of the Past' (mangaged by Dr Wendy Morrison and including Dr Edward Peveler, both School alumni) has revealed hundreds of archaeological sites across Oxfordshire identified during the largest high-resolution archaeological survey ever flown in the UK to help detect archaeological sites. It involved a plane equipped with the laser scanner covering 1,400 km2 of the Chilterns, in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Now they want your help to view and interpret the results.

The team specifically want people who may have spent decades exploring the Chiltern landscape, or those who live in it, and who will bring a unique perspective to the project. Training and tutorials will be offered to teach LiDAR interpretative skills, allowing users to decipher the results of the data themselves and enter their finding on an online portal.
