Ancient Rome’s ‘lost’ road discovered with 3D laser scanner
#Cosmoread: The UK laser scans terrain of northern England weathered the Roman roads that have been hidden for centuries across the country may appear.
In the past 18 years, one of the UK’s Environment Agency of England and surface technology for more than 72 percent were said to gather radar data has been used. This remote sensing technology from the ground to bounce laser light beams 3D terrain maps and peer down the vegetation can reveal the shape of each gap and make the boulder.
Radar maps of the UK, mainly flood protection plans, such as for tracking or eroding shoreline has been used for environmental purposes. But last summer, the Agency Survey Open Data website 11TB threw all of your data set.
Maps -among them caught the attention of archaeologists and history buffs, David Ratledge, a 70-year-old retired engineer, an ancient Roman road for roads has spent nearly five decades, the Times of London reported.
After the Romans invaded Britain in the first century AD, they built an impressive network of roads to secure their capture. Today you live classes on some of these ancient highways can walk in the footsteps of Roman soldiers, but many routes have been stripped of their stones or they have fled to field development.
These “lost” the streets have left some gaps in the history of Roman Britain. Rutledge was a mystery how to get to Lancaster from Ribchester Romans? With access to new maps, Ratledge thinks he has solved the puzzle. The catterall in the main north-south road that led to Lancaster after the Ribchester a 11-mile (17-kilometer) road explored.
“Lancaster Road in the main north-south road and so on Catterall joining takes a very logical and economical way,” Ratledge Roman roads Research Association wrote on its website. “Priest Hill, the White Chapel, Beacon Fell, Oakenclough and Street are looking for a road through the years proved to be time spent in the wrong place!”
Rutledge said a major stretch of the wall of a Roman fort is visible in Google Street View.
“It is a mystery how nobody -spotted -me included,” he wrote.
Hugh hour and Bryn Gethin archaeologists have used the radar data first way, the UK Environment Agency, said in a statement, called a missing part of a Roman road and four other roads, to find.
First developed in the 1960s, the radar has a variety of uses. In one of its most famous early applications, the NASA astronauts during the Apollo missions to the lunar surface to help study. Today, the oil and gas companies to survey land, or 2010 Haiti earthquake or a disaster like Hurricane Sandy has been used to assess the loss. It has also been used in an artistic capacity, haunting images of people in Ethiopia to create.
The technology also buried structures without breaking ground for archaeologists who want to become a useful tool. In recent years, archaeologists have used radar Honduran rainforest to find the lost city of the foundation, the vast ancient city of Angkor in Cambodia lost map and historical sites across New England revealed.
In England, archaeologists only Environment Agency maps of the area are not interested in. The agency said it plans to build new infrastructure for utility companies can use the data for, and winemakers the radar plots, scouting potential for useful maps the vineyards can be found. “Minecraft” players also requested data set to help build the virtual world.
