Detection of burial mounds in agricultural land

Detection of burial mounds in agricultural land

In 2009, the project acquired two new Quickbird images of parts of Vestfold County. In one of the images, CultSearcher was able to detect nine circular crop marks that the archaeologists labeled as valid detections. Of these,

  • Three were already known or within known grave sites
  • Two were previously unknown, and so evident from the image that they are recognized as grave sites
  • Four need to be confirmed in the field

Two circular crop marks that were detected by CultSearcher. The southernmost is within an already known grave field, whereas the northernmost is previously unknown. Quickbird image of Larvik municipality, 24 July 2009.
