Archaeologists managed to locate the lost village of Goschwitz, near Strzelin, South-West Poland, with use of freely available airborne LiDAR data. The Medieval village dates back to the 13th century and existed only for a couple decades.
An ancient network of roads that stretched over nearly 250 kilometres has been discovered in the Guatemalan jungle thanks to LiDAR scans. The structures date to 600 BC and were created by the first state-like civilisation that developed in Mesoamerica.
Linear features and enclosures were identified on airborne LiDAR data within the Białowieża Forest in north-eastern Poland. Archaeologists examined selected sites of the newly-found feature complex and determined their man-made character.
Remains of a 200-year-old plantation manager’s building, owner’s mansion and a kitchen building were unearthed through excavation in La Caroline, north-eastern French Guiana. The plantation was one of hundreds functioning between 18th-19th centuries in that area of South America.
