High Weald

broadwater lidar1 copyThe Historic Environment Awareness Project was an exciting venture which explored the archaeology of the heavily wooded landscape of the Weald Forest Ridge.

A LiDAR (light detection and ranging) survey mapped the area during 2009/10 as part of the Weald Forest Ridge Landscape Partnership Scheme's work.

Woodland archaeology toolkits have been developed for use with the LiDAR images, but they are also suitable for use without. They are useful to anyone investigating the wooded landscapes of the South East. The toolkits will help you to:

Identify archaeological features

Survey and record archaeological features

Undertake historical research of wooded landscapes
