Aerial Archaeology

Developing Future Practice

R.H. Bewley and W. Raczkowski
160x240mm pp.376 Yen11,400 2002

Since the lifting of the Iron Curtain in 1990 there has been an expansion of aerial survey for archaeology throughout Europe. The opportunity to record new archaeological sites from the air has transformed our understanding of the past human settlement of Europe. This book will provide a summary of the work that has taken place in Britain and Europe over the past 100 years, but especially the past twenty years. It will also present the policies and strategies for future work in terms of unlocking existing archives of information and developing new techniques. The audience for the book is mainly aimed at the professional level (archaeologists, historians and geographers) but also the educated member of the public as well as the policy makers and opinion formers in Europe.
