Ongoing Work on Stonehenge Parchmarks

 I am very pleased to see that investigations into the parchmarks at Stonehenge continue:


"For more than a decade, Adam Stanford and English Heritage have periodically recorded the parch marks that appear at Stonehenge in the summer, when conditions are right. Until recently this involved oblique low-level aerial photography via mast, kite, or drone. However, our team have now utilised new UAS (drone) RGB, multispectral, and thermographic survey methods – with illuminating results....

This image shows a terrain-flattened Digital Elevation Model of Stonehenge derived from UAS survey....

Analysis and interpretation of the results with Heather Sebire and Mark Bowden are ongoing."
