Archaeology

Proposed visits to various sites to survey archaeological remains & compare with previous site condition.

Proposed visits to various sites to survey archaeological remains & compare with previous site condition. Nothing will be touched or moved, all data being drawn, photographic or video & to be registered with ArcGIS later. Photogrammetry will generate a comprehensive picture and exact details so that future visits may be able to assess natural degradation.


What is the purpose of the fieldwork?

The various sites identified through existing research by Polish expeditions in 1989 & 1999 from south of Laegerneset , north and east as far as Kjeftausa are to be visited, the remains at each location compared with that previously registered, logged, filmed and photographed for further analysis back in the office. The sites will be examined by sight but will not be touched or anything moved in any way, with all information being taken through photographic or video means to be registered with ArcGIS later.


Photogrammetry will be used to generate a comprehensive picture of the areas and the exact details of the current remains so that future repeat visits may be able to assess the natural degradation of the sites.
