Iron Age

In January 2019, Cotswold Archaeology began working with the North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) to undertake non-intrusive surveys of five Scheduled Monuments in North Devon, with the aim of recording their condition, and providing updated interpretations of each site. This work was funded by Historic England.

To find out about the Iron Age remains within the North Devon Coast AONB click on the site specific llinks below.

The 3D model was produced from a series of high quality aerial photographs taken by drone above the site. The drone was flown in a grid patter, taking a large number of high quality photographs, each overlapping the one before it. This method can survey over large areas in relatively short timeframes when compared with surveys which can be undertaken on foot. The images are processed to produce 3D models. Links to the interactive 3D models can be seen on the site specific pages below
