Locating buried ruins in the British Isles
remote sensing, subsurface ruins, crop circles, NDVI, LiDAR
During the summer of 2018, the British Isles experienced one of the hottest summers on record resulting in the appearance of crop markings which may indicate the presence of buried ruins. This study investigates the capabilities of satellite imagery and LiDAR-based digital terrain models for detecting new locations of ancient subsurface ruins without relying on extreme weather events. Several sites will be compared to determine if there are consistent, reliable criteria that indicate the presence of subsurface ruins.
Presented on April 23, 2019 at Student Research Day held at MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta.
