Using multiple techniques to assess the crop marks of early medieval barrow cemeteries in Scotland
This paper will show how using multiple techniques will refresh our understanding of cropmark sites, which is imperative for their protection and preservation. This work comes out of a research project looking at barrow cemeteries in north and east Scotland, the wealth of aerial archive was reviewed and explored through multiple methods. Rectifying and transcribing the aerial APs was one aspect, but ground survey picked up newly identified upstanding barrows at multiple sites. The results extend the time depth of the barrow landscape, and allow us to better understand this fragile archaeological resource.
