Aerial reconnaissance in mainland Britain in the summer of 1989

  • F. M. Griffith (a1)

The summer of 1989 was hot and exceptionally dry in Britain, making it a good year for aerial archaeology, especially in those damper regions which are rarely forthcoming with visible crop- or parch-marks. Major finds of last year are presented, in the context of the larger pattern of year-by-year work.
