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.
Aerial Laser Scanning revealed presence of a prehistoric farming in the area between Arun river valley in West Sussex and Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Hampshire. The LiDAR survey produced images showing that a field system already protected as a scheduled monument was just a small part of a vast swathe of later pre-historic cultivation.
Vast fields of dome-shaped earthen mounds were found by archaeologists in 1000-year-old sites in Cambodia. The features are organised into gridded patterns. The scientists are puzzled what these structures were used for.
