Lasers reveal ‘lost’ Roman roads

Category: publications

Publicly available data has proved particularly helpful to archaeologistswho who discovered hundreds of miles of Roman roads that have been hidden by layers of soil. Found data speaks about the time of the Roman presence on the British island, the relations between local tribes and economic relations between the cities which were connected by the roads. Preserving of discovered roads depends on the state in which they were found. Some are visible up to half a meter in height, while the rest is buried deep underground and is expected to be preserved and presented in the future. Experts Hugh Toller and Bryn Gethin found at least four such roads using LIDAR technology and the data was sent to archeologists' evaluation. It seems that the greatest discoveries in this field are ahead of us!
