Durham at War Lidar Landscapes
Project Report 2017
This project was completed as part of Durham County Council’s HLF-funded Durham at War project, which works with local volunteers to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. It was designed to serve two purposes. First, to enable volunteers with an interest in landscape archaeology to familiarise themselves with Lidar and its use in archaeological survey. Second, to examine a series of areas where it was known or suspected that features relating to the First World War survived, and to carefully study the Lidar in order to record any remnants of these sites, and any other features of potential archaeological importance, that survive above ground.
The project was designed by Project Consultant Paul Frodsham (ORACLE Heritage Services) working in close consultation with a Project Management Team consisting of Victoria Oxberry (Durham at War Project Officer), Liz Bregazzi (County Archivist) and Nick Boldrini (County Durham Historic Environment Record Officer).
