You are about to meet Peter Spencer, a Freelance Archaeologist, Surveyor, and Geomatics Specialist
You are also about to learn how geospatial tech and techniques are being applied in the field of archaeology at an object scale with laser scanning that enables fragments of skeletons from all over the world to be 3D printed and pieced together locally.
At a site scale LiDAR, ground penetrating radar, and photogrammetry have completely changed the game in terms of modeling archaeological sites in a non-destructive manner.
And at the landscape scale, Earth observation data and AI are being used to prospect for new sites!
You can connect with Pete here
