Welcome to the Cranborne Chase Lidar Portal! The portal has been created as part of the Chase and Chalke Landscape Partnership and provides a unique opportunity to investigate the rich heritage of this landscape through the lens of a very modern technology.

The Chase and Chalke area is a landscape rich in archaeological heritage, from the enigmatic Neolithic Dorset Cursus to the many Bronze Age burial mounds, Iron age settlements and Roman roads. However hundreds of sites remain unknown and unrecorded and this is where you can help!

In this online course we will give you all the tools you need to become a landscape detective, interpreting the lidar data to discover new features and add depth to our collective understanding of the past.

All the course modules are listed below. You can click on the expand button to see the topics in each module. Click on Introduction to get started.
