an informative talk by David Ratledge

 Lancashire has some of the Country’s most spectacular Roman Roads.  The last few years has seen a transformation in the understanding of Lancashire’s Roman road network as a consequence of Lidar data becoming freely available. The use of Lidar data (basically high precision height data) to reveal the course of Roman roads has been a great success throughout the country.  Imagery derived from this data is often able to show clearly the surviving remains of the road agger, terraces, side ditches and cuttings, often where they cannot be identified on the ground through traditional fieldwork.  This has resulted in almost every road in Lancashire being located with high confidence.
