Archaeology

In England, more archaeological sites are discovered every year through the study of aerial photographs than by any other method. New reconnaissance flights continue to discover previously unknown traces of the past, while the study of historic photographs held in archives reveals even more.

The first half of A History of Aerial Photography and Archaeology tells the story of the balloonist-adventurers who first experienced the landscape from above and who pioneered the use of the airborne camera. The second half begins with the First World War explaining the development of aerial survey on the Western Front and the subsequent adoption of these survey techniques by archaeologists.

A History of Aerial Photography and Archaeology describes some of the key individuals and discoveries of the inter-war years, and outlines the role that many well-known archaeologists played as military air-photo interpreters during the Second World War.

The book contains 200 colour and black-and-white photographs, including some of the earliest images taken with cameras from balloons and a wide range of shots of archaeological sites from 1906 to the 21st century. Images include early balloon exploits and intriguing photographs from the Boer War to reconnaissance views from the World Wars and modern aerial shots of archaeological sites.
