Our next DSA Webinar takes place at 18:00hrs, Mon 03 Oct 2022.
The talk will be given by Mr Martyn Barber on “O.G.S. Crawford – from RFC Observer to Aerial Archaeologist”.
Martyn Barber is the Senior Investigator in Historic England’s Aerial Investigation and Mapping team, based in Swindon. Over the last 20 years, he has been involved in numerous projects involving the analysis of aerial imagery, including the Stonehenge & Avebury World Heritage Site. Martyn also has a research interest in the history of aerial photography, and has published a book (‘A History of Aerial Photography and Archaeology': English Heritage 2011) and several papers on the subject, focusing particularly on the Victorian and Edwardian periods.
Martyn has also been researching the life of OGS Crawford – the man responsible for bringing aerial photography into archaeology in the years following the First World War.
