Join us for a virtual evening with archaeologists to explore the secrets of Stonehenge and how an Austrian-British collaboration helped to unlock mysteries of one of the world’s most-studied monuments.
Today technology and archaeology are more and more intertwined and archaeologists have been quick to adopt new and innovative methods to unearth undocumented structures and map the past.
But how do these technologies assist archaeologists in their daily work and how are they transforming it? And how did a multi-tech approach help to unlock mysteries of the landscape of one of the most-famous pre-historic monuments?
Eamonn Baldwin from Birmingham University and Klaus Löcker from Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology in Vienna will talk about their experiences of working on The Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project and how integrated technology allowed them to survey a vast area surrounding the iconic stones.
The Zoom talk is moderated by Susan Greaney.
