Aerial Photography

During the main excavation in 2013, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Adam Stanford, Aerial Cam, who specialises in detailed aerial photography of archaeological sites. He spent some time with the volunteers on site, showing them his set up on the land rover, which included a mast that could be winched up to a height of 22m and a small aircraft to which he could attach a small camera. He was able to provide us with great aerial photos of the site which not only give a better idea of the layout and plans of the buildings next to the road, but also helped us see the site location in relation to the River Derwent and the wider landscape.

The gallery below is of our Eastern Vicus 2013 excavation from the air. Many thanks to Adam for allowing us to use these photos, and for giving us a birds-eye perspective of Derventio.
