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



The above are just a few of my favourite archaeology photos, I have many more in the main gallery, organized geographically . 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  the archaeology link at  the bottom of every page  and you will arrive back here. The gallery now has a search facility so you can search key words such as "Roman" or "Fort" which will bring up many more images. Unfortunately so far I haven't added the keyword archaeology to many images , however search works well for named subjects. Searching for the words bronze, iron, Roman and medieval will bring very many results.


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 - 2013 photos and 50 megapixel for the newest 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. The newer images are even bigger.

I've always been interested in aerial archaeology 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 archaeology . 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 that's not in my gallery yet.
