1984 RCAHMS Aerial Survey

Date 1 January 1984 - 31 December 1984

Event ID 545716

Category Project

Type Project


The main summer flying season again produced excellent results; more than 800 sites were photographed, of which about half were recorded for the first time. These included many unenclosed settlements and several multivallate sites in E Fife; presumed souterrains with structural details showing; henges, cursus-type structures, enclosed and unenclosed settlements in the SW; and important new information about the Roman military occupation of Scotland.

A catalogue of sites recorded in 1982 was issued in May 1984 and preparation of the 1983 material for publication has begun.

A micro-computer based AP transformation and plotting system was installed to facilitate the production of a wide range of scale drawings of sites from oblique aerial photographs
