LiDAR reveals farm walls, roads and homesteads hidden within Connecticut's Pachaug State Forest. Dating to the 18th Century, the farmsteads were abandoned in the 1950's. A revolution in archaeology has resulted from LiDAR's advent, with scholars making new discoveries by using the technology to look at Maya cities, Stonehenge's plains, and Renaissance palaces, among other places.
