[Closed] Project News and Training Sessions
A new blog post on where Citizen Records have been made, and where they haven't! Lots of people have asked about being able to see where they should look next, so here's your answer!
And a direct link to the web map showing the count of Citizen Records per OS grid square:

Some very exciting news from Chilforts towers!
A new hillfort! With the help of you, our Citizen Scientists, we are now able to put a new hillfort dot on the map.
Newsletter and blog post to come later this week.
(Unfortunately we aren't able to reveal its location or many further details at this time - the landowner does not want its location made public, and so our continued opportunity to be able to assess the site is contingent on its location staying out of public knowledge. It is essential that people do not try and find or visit the site, which is on private land with no right of way.)
