There is a degree of subject overlap between this aerial archeology website and my collection of aerial photographs of Castles. Most viewers will enjoy both. Click here to see my Castles images.



The gallery is organized geographically and these archeological shots are deep linked into the main gallery. In many cases I have other views of the same site which you can see by exploring the other images in each location gallery. If you get lost just click main gallery and then archaeology and you will arrive back here.


I also take aerial archeological surveys specially to order; click here for a guide to commissioned aerial photography prices or email me for a quote. I am more than happy to work out of normal hours to catch the morning and evening sun and have highly developed specialist equipment to get pin sharp images even in low light and in situations where normal photography with autofocus will not work.

These web images are much reduced from the original version which range from 6megapixel for older images to 12 megapixel for 2006 & 2007 images and 21 megapixels for the 2008 photos. To see the difference here is a full size (although compressed) sample of the 12MP close up aerial photograph of Iron Age Hut Circles at Garn Boduan Hill Fort.

I've always been interested in aerial archeology and whenever I see anything I take a shot so more pictures will be added as time goes by.Many of the images on this page are shot in special lighting conditions to emphasis the archeology . I've described the pictures as they appear to me, however I cannot guarantee my assumptions are correct and there may be other explanations for these ground features. I've only given exact locations where they are widely known. Due to the dangers of people plundering our nations heritage the exact locations of some sites will only be discussed with relevant academic institutions which will be checked first. For the casual observer remember these sites are protected and it is illegal to disturb them. If this page is of interest then my aerial photographs of castles page is sure to be of interest too. Many of the images would fit in both galleries so I've tried to avoid too much duplication by just featuring here those shots that are particular revealing of otherwise obscure archaeology.


All the UK stock images in my Webb Aviation aerial stock photo library are available for publishing. Publishers & professional image users please click here for information and prices of reproducing these images.



I have many more similar aerial views of the same sites, please email me if you want to buy a picture thats not in my gallery yet.
