Rebecca Bennett, PhD MSc BSc


I am an archaeologist specialising in aerial and ground-based landscape studies. Specifically I am interested in the application of airborne remote sensing prospection techniques; airborne laser scanning (lidar), multi and hyper-spectral imaging for archaeological prospection

I have lots of experience in managing heritage data, especially geospatial data, having worked for a range of organisations across the commercial, academic and local government sectors. Currently I put this to good work running PTS Consultancy, where our main aim is to provide excellent practical training for heritage professionals and support community heritage projects to engage with lidar and landscapes. I am also currently remotely teaching the GIS for Archaeologists undergraduate and postgraduate module at Edinburgh University.

When not at my desk you’ll most likely find me outdoors – running, cycling or swimming – and I’m always on the look out for my next adventure big or small!
