NEW EVENT: ArcLand Conference

From Known Knowns to Unknown Unknowns: Remotely Detecting the Past
9th - 10th May 2013

Wood Quay Venue, Civic Offices, Dublin

Over the past few years the extent and quality of information available from satellites, airborne laser scanning (LiDAR) and aerial photography has grown exponentially. These techniques, collectively referred to as remote sensing, have had an enormous impact on our ability to reveal past landscapes and disseminate knowledge about those landscapes. The results of this work can be both visually exciting and intellectually engaging.
This two day conference brings together a series of speakers to showcase these techniques and the uses to which they can be put. This conference will specifically explore how remote sensing and its results can be used within the sectors of:

           Heritage management and legislation
           Education including: secondary, third level and continual development
           Community heritage and citizen science
Book a place at the K2U2 event

ArchaeoLandscapes Europe offers a small number of bursaries/grants to support students and young scholars to participate in ArcLand-related events and activities. Forms for grant applications can be found on the ArcLand webpage and should be sent to the project leader via email by 5th April 2013.
