adventures in archaeological remote sensing

Publications

I’ve written a number of articles about remote sensing for archaeological landscape survey and other topics of interest over the last 6 years for both academic journals and popular publications. If you have any problems accessing this material, please contact me directly and I will try to help.

In addition to these you can access my entire PhD thesis online. should you want to look at any of the work underlying papers dating from 2009-2012 in more depth.
