LAC2018

Published Date

 

Landscape Archaeology Conference 2018

We are inviting scholars and professionals to submit an abstract for our accepted remote sensing and archaeology session for LAC 2018 (Landscape Archaeology Conference) to be held in Newcastle and Durham, September 17th-20th. This year, the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society’s Archaeology group is collaborating with LAC to highlight the significant interdisciplinary research occurring between these subjects

 

Abstract:  REMOTE SENSING IN LANDSCAPE ARCHAEOLOGY RESEARCH

Session chairs: Dr Louise Rayne (University of Leicester), Dr Chris Brooke (University of Nottingham) and Professor Danny Donoghue (University of Durham)

This session assesses the status of remote sensing applications in landscape archaeology and explores how their use could have a more significant impact on archaeological research and cultural heritage protection in future. It is organised in conjunction with the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc), which has an Archaeology Special Interest Group. Remote sensing and GIS have rapidly been adopted by archaeologists for several key reasons: fast mapping of entire landscapes, analysis of large datasets, and a way of recording features in areas rendered inaccessible, for example in areas affected by current conflict and by land-use change. In recent years many image interpretation-based studies, classifications and automated detection projects (and thermal imaging, photogrammetry, lidar, SAR [Synthetic Aperture Radar] and the relatively low-cost and user-friendly sfm [‘structure-from-motion]) software packages) have been applied to cultural heritage protection as well as recording and analysis. Applications have also sought to demonstrate the use of remote sensing for specific regions, sites, buildings and even objects. The value of many of the products of these analyses needs to be established more robustly, however, reflecting on the need for them to enhance our understanding of past landscapes rather than primarily acting as aesthetically-pleasing visualisations. While many archaeological projects rely exclusively on trained expertise in remote sensing, others are also making use of citizen scientists to build larger datasets. This session will present a number of relevant remote sensing tools and case studies across a wide temporal and spatial range and assess the impact of an increasingly open-source research environment.  The session will also promote a discussion of how the impact of remote sensing and GIS techniques on landscape archaeology and cultural heritage can be increased.
