SLU professor maps medieval Irish site

US: A history professor in Missouri’s Saint Louis University is using drones to map a medieval Irish site. Dr. Thomas Finan and his team are working in Ireland’s North Roscommon region to discover more about a major medieval Gaelic settlement. Apart from using traditional mapping methods, like gradiometry and topographical surveys, the team is relying heavily on aerial surveying through drones. Dr. Finan says that wrapping digital geophysics data with 3D data is giving the team an amazing understanding of what is there without sinking a spade.
