Interactive map lets users explore England’s hidden archaeological landscape

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

From Roman ruins to Cold War bunkers, England is home to countless hidden archaeological landscapes spanning thousands of years. Now, writes Harriet Sherwood for the Guardian, an interactive map published by Historic England allows users to take “virtual flights” over these treasures of the past.

Researchers used more than 500,000 aerial photographs captured over the past 30 years, as well as 3-D laser scans, to piece together a digital mosaic described by Historic England as “a huge archaeological jigsaw puzzle.” The online map features heritage sites covering more than half of the country.
