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:

Data correct on 5th May 2020.

Hi all,

Another set of workshops for July! Repeats of the Introduction session, the Improving Interpretation session, and the Review Portal training, plus two more Mapathons.

At the Mapathon on 10th July we will have Sam Johansen joining us, the Community Heritage Officer for the Chalk, Cherries, & Chairs Project, to talk about routeways in the Chilterns, so don’t miss that!

 As always, sign up at the link, and I’ll send out joining details the day before.

A recording of yesterday’s workshop on using Environment Agency LiDAR data should be coming shortly, if you missed it. I'll post it with a short blog post on the session.

Some very exciting news from Chilforts towers! 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-53741441

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.)

Hi all,

After a couple of weeks of holiday, I'm back! Catching up on emails and things, and will have more updates soon, but for now:

A late posting of last month's newsletter attached.

And link to this Friday's Mapathon -  https://share.hsforms.com/1XDEloBX3TYC25oIDId1GvQ2orgq

Hope to see some of you there! Training sessions to resume in October, and plans for a new session on the use of 3D visualisation methods for exploring LiDAR...

A couple of events for December. Do sign up on the forms, so I can email you the joining link. 

And then a questionnaire, asking about the New Year - are there any of my regular training courses which you've not made it to, but want to? Or are there any other topics you'd like me to cover?

Training in the New Year – what do you want?

In addition to the above events, check out the latest blog post, about the evidence for the Roman roads in the Chilterns as seen in the LiDAR data - a precis of some of the things discussed at the talk Nigel Rothwell and I gave last week based on his work.
