Museum Booklet: A Land Through Time

Lidar bookletThe eighth in the Museum’s series of booklets is a follow-up to our successful Heritage Lottery-funded LiDAR project. This measured tiny differences in height of the land surface of part of the Bradford Hundred area by the reflected beams of lasers fired from a plane.

It produced amazingly detailed images of large numbers of features in the landscape that have been made by natural forces and by farmers over thousands of years. The features are most marked in areas of dense woodland where they have escaped destruction by later ploughing and are otherwise difficult to see.

The booklet, by Roy Canham of the Museum, shows many of these wonderful images and gives some of our early attempts at interpreting them.

The first edition of this booklet has sold out; it is hoped that a new edition will be produced after new information has been processed.
