A Highlight Report for the National Mapping Programme

By Stephen Crowther, Amanda Adams

This illustrated report describes the results and methods of the air photo and lidar mapping and interpretation undertaken for the Severn Vale NMP (6585).

The project was funded by the Historic England Heritage Commissions Programme (HCP) and carried out by Stephen Crowther and Amanda Adams of Gloucestershire County Council Archaeology Service. Mapping took place between August 2013 and January 2016 and the report was completed in January 2016. The project used Historic England National Mapping Programme methods and standards.

This report includes an overview of the sources of aerial imagery and the methods used to create maps and records of the archaeological monuments. A period-based overview of the archaeological results highlights some of the discoveries and analysis arising from this work. There are recommendations for further work.
