Archaeology in Marlow and Marlow Archaeological Society will start 2016 with an exciting joint programme of talks about recent discoveries in and around Stonehenge.
This work represents the largest high-resolution archaeological geophysical survey ever undertaken, revealing tens of thousands of features, distinct areas of land use and many new sites (including previously unknown Neolithic ceremonial monuments).
Our speakers will explain the importance of the discoveries and the technology that made them possible. They will also talk about the enormous leap in knowledge the Hidden Landscapes programme has provided and how it is shedding light on our understanding of Stonehenge.
The talks will also provide a unique opportunity to hear more about the discovery of “Stonehenge II” or so called “Superhenge”. Both speakers are leading experts in the field and conversant in the use of the very latest techniques in remote sensing in geophysics, including ground penetrating radar.
The first talk on the 14th January 2016, will be given by, Eamonn Baldwin who, is a member of the Ludwig Boltzman Institute and responsible for the VISTA Remote Sensing Division at the University of Birmingham. Eamonn will talk about the techniques used by the team to uncover the prehistoric landscape.
The second talk will be held on 25th February 2016 and will be given by Paul Garwood, Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Birmingham, and the lead prehistorian on the ‘Hidden Landscapes Project’.
Both talks start at 8pm and will be held in the main room of Liston Hall, Chapel Street, Marlow SL7 1DD
Entry tickets will be sold on the door, £3 for members of AiM and MAS, £4 for non-members.
Free parking is available in the evening adjacent to the Liston Hall.
