The research for this project is led by Mr Keith Challis (HP Vista Centre) and Dr Andy J Howard (Institute of Archaeology and Antiquity) both University of Birmingham with funding from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund as administered by English Heritage.

This project investigated the potential of multispectral and hyperspectral methods of airborne remote sensing (RS) for the prospection of cultural, environmental and geoarchaeological remains in river valley floors. The project undertook systematic examination of Daedalus 1268 Airborne Thematic Mapper (ATM) and Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI) multispectral data. AISA Eagle hyperspectral data for a small area were also examined. Work focused on the archaeologically rich, well documented aggregate landscapes of the middle Trent Valley, Nottinghamshire.

The project contributes towards Trent Valley GeoArchaeology, a group of organisations and individuals with interests and involvement in the archaeology and palaeoenvironments of the Trent Valley, the River Trent and its tributaries.
