Below is extraordinary new research into Culloden Battlefield by renowned experts. Well worth watching, but be aware that the entire Webinar goes for 3hrs 37min, so maybe best to watch in a couple of sessions.
This is a mini-conference by Professor Murray Pittock and includes presentations by historian Professor Christopher Duffy on the latest map analysis, and archaeologist Derek Alexander on the analysis of Lidar data which will help understand more about what is hidden under the turf.
Find out what the latest research reveals about the Battle of Culloden.
NB: Lidar data (light detection and ranging) is an optical remote-sensing technique that uses laser light to densely sample the surface of the earth, producing highly accurate x,y,z measurements. Lidar, primarily used in airborne laser mapping applications, is emerging as a cost-effective alternative to traditional surveying techniques such as photogrammetry. Lidar produces mass point cloud datasets that can be managed, visualized, analyzed, and shared.
