Celtic and Saxon Field shapes
Click on the left or right of the images to turn the pages.

As a part of an ongoing research project, I have been filming and photographing Celtic - pre 700 CE and Saxon - post 700CE field outlines in the Dorset landscape. This evidence of agricultural history is slowly being lost and covered with modern farming  or even the spreading of new town developments. There are original sketch maps in some of the county record books but these are often inaccurate. There are also some black and white photographs from the 1920s but very little since then and virtually none in colour. Today, I can fly my drone at a lower altitude and photograph the beautiful shapes in the early morning or late evening when the sun shadows reveal the banks and ditches more clearly.
If you have drone flight images you want to show, either go to www.skydown.co.uk or tell us in the comments box below.
